It’s fascinating to see both conservatives and liberals using “PC” as an insult which is designed to dismiss someone’s point without acknowledging it, addressing it, or implying that the author’s opinions have any kind of value.
I can deal with conservative ignorance and the dismissal of feminism by most conservatives. […] What I don’t understand is why sexism is allowed to thrive in the liberal community, which is supposedly so intolerant of sexism, and why it is that liberals are so determined to ignore very real criticisms of their sexism, ableism, classism, and racism. It’s impossible to have a rational discussion with someone who is wilfully ignoring you, which makes it impossible to get at the rot of sexism in the core of many liberals, and in the core of some liberal values.
Willful ignorance is a gigantic problem when talking about racism and sexism with alleged “free thinkers”. Dismissive insults are a big part of that.
