Has PC invaded the writer's freedom of expression? Are there words, phrases, descriptions etc. that are taboo because they are not politically correct and 'could' prevent a work from being published? If so, why? Should a writer be limited in their 'mode' of expression because that 'mode' could potentially offend someone? I can't help but notice how PC has invaded almost everything, these days. The other day, I was looking up the time Avatar was playing at my local theater. In reading the film's disclaimer I saw "this film contains some smoking". I was blown away by that. I had to question; 'at what point does this end?'. How did we ever get here? It's like a kid on a soccer team getting a trophy for 'showing up'. or the last MVP award.
