Political correctness gone insane

As some of you already know, I have very strong views on political correctness, to the point where I believe it's edging towards the downfall of society. Insanity is another word I use for it.

Here's the latest gesture of insanity to sicken me. A hospital in West Yorkshire, UK, has declared itself to be a proponent of "patient's rights" by enforcing an attitude that babies are patients too. Not only are they patients, but they're 'little people', just like you and I (except we're not so little... well, I don't know about you at least...).

As people with rights, looking at them and picking them up and cooing at them and making funny faces at them have been banned. It seems this hospital believes that such actions are not in accordance with the rights of 'the patient' to be treated with dignity and respect.

It just makes me sick to see the idiocy of people in charge; people who have absolutely no fracking* idea what they're doing, and who, with the following of politically correct ideals, just shows them to be incredibly insane themselves. Not only is political correctness insane, in my opinion, but so are the people who promote such ideals.


* I'm a big fan of the new series of Battlestar Galactica, and they use the word 'frack' and 'fracking' a lot. We all know what the word replaces, and is a great way of saying the equivalent without actually saying it, especially on TV. I'm going to be using it myself from now on. :-)

From a review:
In terms of spacey dialogue, most all of the "space" words were gone. The main one that they kept was the expletive "frack". And they put that to use big time. On the original show you pretty much only heard the word used as "frack". The equivalent to "dang!" On the new show frack seemed more like another "f" word. Instead of just "frack" you got all sorts of variants: frack, fracking, mother fracking, fracked up, frackitty frack (don't talk back). Okay... maybe not that last one.

It's not the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard, but it's up there in the top 5.

The irony of it is that it is just those cooing, gurgling noises that encourage children to begin copying what they hear, the beginnings of learning to learn and to speak.

Idiocy of the first order.

Award that hospital a Muppetry Certificate immediately.
