Okay, so often political correctness comes up in other threads, and it can be quite consuming, not very fair to the OP. So let's discuss it since it's such a big discussion point. I'm going to pose a series of questions and we can look at the advantages and flaws of various protection measures and maybe we can even reach some resolutions about this important issue. To start with, banning and safe spaces. Question 1: Should people like Trump be banned from other western countries as is currently being discussed in Australia and England? Is there harm potential great enough or is this oversensitivity? Question 2: What exactly do safe spaces entail and how strong should they be? Is what they target a legitimate problem or not? Personally, I think we shouldn't ban people like Trump unless they become vilifying. In Australia we have a Anti-Racial Vilification Law, and it's got pretty high bar criteria. Not many people are arrested for it. I would like this criteria to be applied to other groups, no-one should publicly vilify a group or indeed person or organisation. But anything without enough reasonable responsibility for incitement should be fine. I don't like Trump and I don't like his ideas but I don't think he's bad enough, or taken seriously enough, that we can't handle his comments. I also think safe spaces should only follow a policy that in certain areas specific and direct hatred towards people on race, gender etc. If you go somewhere clearly labelled as where gay people like to hang out and start screaming "faggots!" that's inappropriate, and places already have similar behavioural standards for other nudity or obscene drunkenness etc for a long time. However, holding an anti-gay stance or whatever should not count, saying "I'm against gay marriage!" is not hatred, and that goes into denying service for personal demographics, not inappropriate behaviour. It's the same as banning, target the genuine harm, and just laugh your way through more harmless forms of hatred because it's pretty stupid stuff. What do people think?
