Harry Truman explained to Gen. MacArthur the meaning of Politically Correct:

Get Relocation Consulting and Coaching from Live in the Philippines

Political Correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and promoted by a sick mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by clean end!

But “Snopes.Com” claimed that is false, which begs the question; “Who checks Snopes?”

We in the west are ruled by the media and what they tell us what is proper to think and what this week’s “PC” term is .One example: on face book I used the term Handicapped and was attacked by turd handlers saying the proper term is “Person’s with a disability” That caused me to beg the question “If that is true, when is the United States going to change all the signs that say Handicapped Parking and “Handicapped Access” but since it didn’t involve the administration I was not called a racist which is the current “PC” term meaning; “One Who Disagrees”

I try not to pick up turds at all, I let the PC crowd do it for me.

I try not to pick up turds at all, I let the PC crowd do it for me.

A guy named Bruce has had plastic surgery and wants to be referred to as a woman, while still retaining his male equipment. but to me in my life I really don’t care, and if I had to live with his wife Chris and that many Kardashian people the loss of his manhood would be completely understandable I’m sorry but if he tried to enter the same public rest room of my daughters or granddaughter, I would demonstrate to him the term “Politically Incorrect” no matter how many awards for being a hero, his sycophant Hollywood crowd and the media award him. (Which he did deserve for the abilities he demonstrated as an Olympian Swimmer), He is still a guy who has had hormone injections, and the money for a new wardrobe. The term “Trans-Gender” is the term de jour in the states this year, where here in the Philippines it is just “Bakla”, and no awards are given for it.

This is on my gate.

This is on my gate.

In my purok, there are three Lady Boys, (How’s that for not being “PC”?) In Thailand they are called Katoy’s, or Girly-men and none of these terms are considered by their citizens to be demeaning, it’s just what they are called. Since the Tagalog language does not use pronouns like he and she, what else can you say.

But the truth again they don’t bother me, they have the right to exist unbothered by anyone or any group, and the right to live their life the way they want. If they want to get married, and the liberals in the West thinks that is wonderful, fine by me. It’s time we shared divorce and the pleasures of In-Laws with them.

But what I really want is my language returned to normal, I want to hear the Christmas Carol “Deck the Halls” and the liberals not giggle when they hear the verse “Don we now our gay apparel” thinking it means to dress up in drag. Gay means happy and that’s it! And rainbows happen after the rain.

One Bakla across the street from my Bataan mountain home owns the re-opened Sari sari store and comes to work from 0500 untill 2200 every single day, in full makeup and lady clothing, and is very well liked in the purok., In the evening it has become the purok “Hang Around Spot” for all the ladies, and way too many guys.

BTW, I have met the young Lady Boy, and enjoy the banter that goes between us, a very funny person (She/he was shocked that a Kano was not homophobic.) BTW Mayang is also one of the nightly regulars

I respect the Filipino are more mature than the West in their tolerance of different lifestyles, and I find it pleasantly refreshing. We in the West need to learn to take things in stride, if it’s not in your face, and doesn’t detract from your quality of life, than why let it bother you, just follow the Filipino way, shrug your shoulders and utter that old time honored phrase “Wala” Because Eat Bulaga is going to have Juan for all, and all for Juan with YaYa Dub on everyday and it cracks the viewers up. (Me too)

ITS A BOY” my friend shouted “A BOY, I DON’T BELIEVE IT, ITS A BOY” and with tears streaming down his face it was at that moment that he swore to the rest of us that he’d never visit another Brothel in Thailand again!

He won his medal in the decathlon. We both got it wrong

Let’s clear this up PC stuff up once and for all: The rumor that Bruce Jenner is now posing on the cartons of Half and Half is completely false.

Great article Paul. Yes, it is nice to be in Phils where people are accepted for what they are without political correctness. By the way, Bruce was an Olympic decathlon champion, not a swimmer.

Byron above told me Bruce was a speed skater but I did get it wrong when I said swimmer, It won’t be my first gaff and I know it will not be my last. (lol)
But it is so nice to be away from the “PC” Police and all their silly ideas.

Loren;
In my bar in Puerto Rico there were two customers who were gay, and the Navy kids were very upset about it. I asked the most out spoken kid if he knew for certain that he was straight. Of course he said yes. I smiled and then said: “That would mean that you’ve tried it and decided that you didn’t like it?” Even his two shipmates ragged on him about that and no more homophobic comments were uttered.
We’ll have that drink as soon as you get here!!!! Live and let live.

Four of my shipmates and I were sitting in a bar in San Francisco (I know shocking isn’t it.) and this San Franciscan unicorn herder informed us that he found our conversation to be “Rude”. I stood up got into his face and said: “We find eavesdropping to also be rude, go home right now!” Problem solved!

There is tolerance here but I wonder what will happen when certain types start demanding their “rights” such as being married, etc.

Tony; I can’t really see what difference it would make to the average citizen struggling to feed their family. It requires people with too much spare time on their hand to worry about trivial matters like that. When Ireland (My families country of origin) legalized same sex marriage I yawned, and did the same when it happened in the US. It affects my life or religious beliefs not one whit. I woke up the nest day and my life was unaltered. I’ll assume (Except for the church) the same will happen here. But as always I reserve the right to… Read more »

Good morning, chief! Nice post. I believe in political correctness but there are times people go overboard. People here can be just as overly sensitive, Filipinos being the very sensitive types. Such as the initials “PWD” or “people with disabilities”. I view it as what I call “Filipino English”. If people have disabilities, aren’t they handicapped? How could “handicapped” be offensive? When we visited the States last July, that was one of the first things I observed there. I didn’t see any handicapped person being offended. Here, there are people who will see in bus seats reserved for so-called PWDs.… Read more »

You know Wikipedia is great for follow up. I had no idea that the word I have been using for decades to call the dogs in the Philippines is now wrong. Not one of my relatives told me!

I will keep using it until someone tells me to stop, then i will read them the Paul Thompson riot orders. LOL!!!!

Tito Joe;
They are not my marching orders, as a free thinking man they should be yours. I categorically refuse to allow any group to try and instill their way of thinking onto me.
If anyone thinks that the sitting president of the US is doing a great job, that is their right. There right will come to a speedy halt when they try to instill their beliefs onto me. It’s just that simple.

I didn’t know about it until last year when I brought my two cats for spaying to PAWS, the local animal rights organization. And then I remembered a news story about such a legislation coming out of Congress, which produces a lot of nonsense anyway.

And now we have the Azkals football team. Nobody seems to be bothered about that.

I found the legislation. RA 8485, the Animal Welfare Act of the Philippines. I didn’t know that it’s been there since 1998.

Norman; To be politically correct on the subject of your being political correct, I’ll agree to politely disagree. When only the few “Enlightened” individuals get the memo as what is the term de jour on any subject and use it to chide the rest of us (The unwashed masses) while looking down their nose with sanctimonious glee, I refute their right to do so, as I’m in the majority and they are not. But when they try I’ll smile and ignore them along the vast majority of the world. I’ll quote Yoda of Star Wars Fame to them; “Offended you… Read more »

Actually, I agree with you for the most part. The world used to be much more simple. It irks me at times that when I feel that being politically correct is becoming ridiculous. Another thing that I don’t like is when people think that you’re being a bigot when you’re not, and then they shout you down. Already happened to me occasionally. Anyway, I don’t see anything offending with “American Indian”. But I WAS careful to watch my choice of words when I was in the States just the same. By the way, just a historical trivia, the first US… Read more »

Norman; We in the states have put up with the worst 7 years in our history caused by the “PC” and rabid liberals, for if as a citizen I disagreed with any policy set forth by our sitting president, I was shouted down and labeled a racist, which would mean that any person of color who disagreed with any president in the past would also be subject to the same logic. American Indians find nothing wrong with that term (That I have ever heard) or the names of the countless sporting teams also named after them, again it is that… Read more »

Yes Paul not just the USA. In Australia if you criticise muslims you are racist even though muslims can be any race including white. Aboriginals can’t be called black even though they refer to themselves as black and the rest of us whiteys. At present there is a debate over a free trade agreement with China and now anyone questioning the deal is called a racist or xenophobic even by our Prime Minister. If you criticise a women you are a mysogynist (like Donald Trump) etc etc etc. I find it all infuriating.

Michael;
It only means that minorities have better press relation people in the majority, and the liberal media are terrified of them. I don’t walk on egg shells and I don’t go out with the intent to insult or demean anyone. But if PC crap is thrown in my face its “Katy bar the door” (No insult to any of the Katy’s on Earth) Plus I thought misogynist was someone who liked massages. See what the hell do I know?

Personally I don’t pay attention to the PC crowd. Why? It is a waste of time. I taught at an all black school and never once had a conflict. Truth is those working in a ghetto area are too focused on their own problems to be concerned about something someone might say. Those that don’t like MLK Day, or Kwanzaa Day, or whether Santa Claus is white or black shouldn’t be involved with a ghetto area. It doesn’t really matter anyway, right? One could say is Gates, Buffet, pick someone, are white. But why? Too many people just aren’t going… Read more »

And I like living where there is no PC crowd, and I’m the minority and am never offended when I’m called a Kano.
I really have no thoughts on Kwanzaa Day as it doesn’t exist but in the minds a few. MLK was a great republican and deservers to be honored for his peaceful work on civil rights.

Great post, Paul. Yes, PC has certainly gotten way out of control in the States. Something are OK but too many people look for any remark to call someone a racist/bigot/whatever.

I tell my wife she is physically challenged as she can’t pull into a parking spot correctly. I am sure if a liberal heard me say that they’d find fault.

Rusty;
I cured my wife’s parking disability; I installed a back-up camera on the car. The main reason I want a male president, is so if I disagree I can’t be called a sexist. Eight years being called a racist was plenty for me.
