just lately some things have annoyed me and while I don't want my journal here to turn into a discussion of my beliefs...this next post is something that has been bothering me since I heard about it on the news a few nights ago..........politically correctness - what on earth is that?
the powers that be or all those people who don't have anything better to do, have decided that a fairy penguin can no longer be called a fairy penguin because the gay community may be offended..... I have many, many friends in the 'gay community' and they think this is totally ridiculous and feel they are being used as an excuse for 'political correctness' I just wonder what on earth they are going to do with our state that is known as Queensland? will that become Sovereignland or Personwhositsonathroneland? .... the same powers have decided all these too, are politically incorrect : a blackboard is now a chalkboard, a whiteboard is now a penboard, you can no longer say ' good boy or good girl' it is now good child. There was even an instance of a child singing 'baa baa black sheep' and was totally confused so sang 'baa baa rainbow sheep' - oh puhleasse !!! We are creating a breed of confused children. Really, it annoys me no end, all of this. These people need to get lives - if they want to change the world...maybe get out and do some charity work and help the world that way. Cause the way they are helping us isn't working at all
bring back the vintage way, where a spade is called a spade!
