Political correctness and hurtful double standards hurt us male survivors as much as anybody & more than most. When our new friend Zealander mentioned his loathing of political correctness on "Male Survivors" I thot of this song:

When I was young
It seemed that life was so wonderful
A miracle, oh it was beautiful, magical
And all the birds in the trees
Well they'd be singing so happily
Oh joyfully, oh playfully watching me
But then they sent me away
To teach me how to be sensible
Logical, oh responsible, practical
And then they showed me a world
Where I could be so dependable
Oh clinical, oh intellectual, cynical

There are times when all the world's asleep
The questions run too deep
For such a simple man
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
Please tell me who I am

I say: Now watch what you say
Or they'll be calling you a radical
A liberal, oh fanatical, criminal
Oh won't you sign up your name
We'd like to feel you're acceptable,
respectable, oh presentable, a vegetable
whoa (tick tick tick yeah)

But at night when all the world's asleep
The questions run so deep
For such a simple man
Won't you please, please tell me what we've learned
I know it sounds absurd
But please tell me who I am, who I am, who I am, who I am

The Logical Song by Supertramp

Okay now count: 1-2-3-5!

Zealander: That's my "Anthem of the Politically Incorrect." If theres anything I can't stand its being boxed in. My childhood home life trapped me and stifled my creativity. From my perception, so did the public school system in general.

IMNSHO, political correctness has been a growing & major factor in stifling creativity, or even independent thinking, in our society. It's on the way to making us a bunch of mindless puppets of the system. In the words of Pink Floyd, "Welcome to the Machine."

Well, I'll apply my Survivors Anthem here: "I Won't Back Down!"

But I will get off the soapbox you got me up on, Zealander! :p ;\) \:D

Take care.
