I'm the first to admit that I'm not hop on what the current trends are...in fashion, language, or many other areas of life. I don't know what's politically correct to say and I just always try not to be offensive, even though I know that's impossible...people are offended even by sweet lil me!
I started wondering about it today though. Gracie (who's 3 for another week) said someone was fat and Jace (a graduate of Kindergarten) told her that wasn't nice. He's right, but why? It's true?
Then, later Gracie and I were talking about Uncle Jason, my brother. She asked why he can't talk and I said he was handicapped...wondering if that was the right terminology to teach her. Turns out...it was definitely the humorous choice.
"How did Uncle Jason get capped?"
I know...funny isn't it?
But as soon as I stifled my giggle and repeated "handicapped" I wondered if it was OK to laugh at that unintended play on words. Is it?
All this PC crap has me way too touchy!
