The term: 'Political Correctness'

There’s said to be an annual contest at Griffith University, Queensland, calling for the most appropriate definition of a contemporary term.

The term this year: 'Political Correctness'

The winning student wrote:

Political correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority and rapidly promoted by mainstream media, holding forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a piece of shit by the clean end.
