Answered on Quora:
Absolutely. Most of the time my answers have been flagged as violations of “Be Nice, Be Respectful,” I was simply reporting things that were 100% factual, in my opinion. Or at least reasonable opinions that almost any intelligent, rational and unbiased person would realize are factual. Did you hear that?
Almost all of my warnings have been from posting facts! Inconvenient facts, yes, but facts nonetheless. You see PC is based on the idea that if the truth offends you, it’s not true. So all facts that are offensive to PC people, including a vast range of common knowledge, common sense and even science, are deemed racist, sexist, homophobic and transphobic lies.
- The truth is racist.
- The truth is sexist.
- The truth is homophobic.
- The truth is transphobic.
Not only that, but PC people will try to destroy anyone who reports and inconvenient or unpleasant fact that violates the PC Commissars’ version of truth.
As far as philosophy goes, PC people’s versions of truth and falsehood are pretty interesting from a philosophical POV. I wonder how many famous philosophers would agree with the PC nation that:
- Truth: That which does not offend me and is true
- Falsehood: That which is not true or is true but offends me.
I would think almost all of the world’s most famous philosophers would reject that definition.
