Why? Even the definition of pc explains it well enough. It only pertains to certain groups rather than people in general. Even then politeness has nothing to do with it. The attempt at redefining racism and invention of colorism are prime examples of being pc/progressive. The concept of culture appropriation is pc.

"When you're politically correct, you're careful not to insult people or marginalize them, especially if they belong to a group that's often discriminated against or is in some way at a disadvantage."

It does not "only" pertain to certain groups.  It pertains to everyone.  

Not white males. So it's not everyone.

Lets be real, every group except whites in practice.

And your source on that is what?

If you want to use it that way, that's your choice.  Words are just constructions.  

I'm going to use it the same way that the people that I know use it, which is "be a decent person"(regardless of skin color)

 ugh. Some silly shit.  It's essentially discrimination based on skin color between people of color.

They had to invent it because they tried to redefine racism as "prejudice plus power".

 

 

Any sources that reference that?

Hmm. Are you playing dumb or do you genuinely not know? Hard to tell. If you're  not satisfied with those as sources, you're more than welcomed to research the terms on your own. I only provided links as a quick reference to ones who don't know what I meant.

The only factor missing is desire. If someone was willing to sleep 4 hours a day for a few months so they can work out from 4am-6am they wouldnt be fat.

Things like illness and metabolism play a major factor in weight.  So no, most people probably could work out, but for some people it wouldn't make a difference.  https://www.webmd.com/diet/obesity/medical-reasons-obesity

Besides, why does it matter if someone isn't skinny?

It doesn't matter to me, but expect to be made fun of. Being overweight is not good for you. You should be in shape. That's how we evolved.

Probably the only people that got offended by that are Asian Americans who have never lived in any Asian country. Happens all the time.

I'm asking because I've never heard of those terms before, I've never seen anyone use them.

You quoted it yourself. 😹

 "especially if they belong to a group that's often discriminated against or is in some way at a disadvantage"

No progressive would accuse a white male of those things even in South Africa. *shrugs

You're being intellectual dishonest if you take it beyond this point as in saying that it's not true because I didn't show a source. Anyone in the states knows this as a fact and if they say different, they're lying. PC only pertains to some people. It has nothing to do with being polite to everyone.



More "outrage" to point and laugh at, glorious.

You seem to have confused the words "only" and "especially".  

"only" is an exclusionary term, that specifies a specific group excludes all other groups.  

"especially" is an inclusionary term, that even when used to specify a specific group, still includes all other groups.  

 

@bold: I'd accuse anybody of anything that they've done.  If a black person is being racist, I call it out.  If a white person is being racist, I call it out.  

If a male is being misogynist, I call it out.  If a female is being misandrist, I call it out.
