So I am not being politically correct in not using offensive language I just carry my upbringing lovingly with me.
Btw, that was just to exlain why it reads 'bottom' and not something else...
Polically correct terms, then?
I suppose we change our minds and our language over time and you could argue that the names are rather stereotypical based on past times ignorance and booth-putting so perhaps the times of change just blew the naming terms right across the idea table and out the window.
Apparently Tintin who had a comic book called 'Tintin in Tibet' in China is called the very politically correct 'Tintin in Chinese Tibet'.
I run workshops and training and I am not the most politically correct person around but I never mean any harm or offense to anyone, I never mean to be rude or make hurtful comments in any way, and I am pretty sure people know - at least I hope they do and if all else fails I refer back to my country of origin! If people intend to come on my courses to learn what everyone else teaches then the learning objective for my classes is removed and we would all be wasting our time, money and efforts altogether.
I love what I do and I love the people I work with and who join me laughing on my trainings and workshops - we are all the same and we want the real laughter, and the real words, and the real honesty - that's why we do what we do and make that change proactively.
Political correctness? Baa baa black sheep have you any wool...
When do we decide enough is enough?
Yes, things have changed over the years but we have our load of baggage and history and heritage to pass on - both for own culture and the culture of others, that is our responsibility.

Orange had a slogan many years ago, 'A stranger is just a friend you haven't met'. How about adopting this way of viewing each other and let the hostility vapourise.
And soon there will be miles of smiles!
