Down with “politically correct”

“…’political correctness’ is merely a pejorative wielded by those who wish to protect the status quo.” Medium article

I couldn’t agree more and wish we could simply retire the term.

This isn’t to say that I agree with all of the various usage codes that have been dreamed up in academia and elsewhere. A “person of material wealth” is rich, dammit.

Rather than politically correct, let’s call some of that what it is: silly, absurd, over the top, a waste of characters … anything except PC.
