                                  PC PRIMER
 -------------------------------------------------------------------------




 Q:  WHAT IS P.C.?

 PC stands for Politically Correct.  We of the Politically Correct
 philosophy believe in increasing a tolerance for a DIVERSITY of cultures,
 race, gender, ideology and alternate lifestyles.  Politically Correctness
 is the only social and morally acceptable outlook.  Anyone who disagrees
 with this philosophy is bigoted, biased, sexist, and/or closed-minded.

 Q:  WHY SHOULD I BE PC?

 Being PC is fun.  PCism is not just an attitude, it is a way of life!  PC
 offers the satisfaction of knowing that you are undoing the social
 evils of centuries of oppression.

 Q:  I AM A WHITE MALE.  CAN I STILL BE PC?

 Sure.  As a matter of fact, most people at the forefront of the PC grand
 destiny ARE white males.  But remember, as a white male, you must
 constantly feel guilty.

 Q:  WHY?

 If you are a white male, your ancestors were responsible for practically
 every injustice in the world--slavery, war, genocide and plaid sportscoats.
 That means that YOU are partially responsible for these atrocities.  Now
 it is time to balance the scales of justice for the descendants of those
 individuals whose ancestors your ancestors pushed down.

 Q:  HOW?

 It's simple.  You've got to be careful what you say, what you think, and
 what you do.  You just don't want to offend anyone.

 Q:  YOU MEAN I SHOULD GUARD AGAINST OFFENDING ANYONE?

 That's right.  Being offensive is destructive, and will not make the world
 a harmonious utopia, like in John Lennon's IMAGINE.

 Q:  HOW ELSE CAN I BE PC?

 Oh, there are lots of ways.  For example, why buy regular ice cream when you
 can buy "Rain Forest Crunch?"  Segrega..whoops..separate all of your garbage
 into different containers:  glass, metal, white paper, blue paper, plastic,
 etc.  Make sure that all your make-up has not been tested on animals.  Try
 to find at least sixty ways to use your water; when you take a shower, brush
 your teeth at the same time.  Then don't let the water go down the drain,
 use it to irrigate your lawn.  Or better yet, replace your lawn with a
 vegetable garden.  Don't use aerosol.  And by all means, don't burn or deface
 our flag.  Remember, as a citizen of the United States, your living in God's
 country.  If you are fortunate enough to know your ethnic heritage, dress the
 part!  Don't do drugs.  You should listen to at least one of the following PC
 musicians:  U2, REM, Sinead O'Connor, Sting, or k.d. Lang.

 Harass people who wear fur coats.  Remind them that an innocent baby seal was
 mercilessly clubbed.  Or just yell, "FUR."  They hate that.  And don't EVER
 eat meat.

 Q:  DON'T EAT MEAT?  WHY NOT?!

 Cows are animals, just like humans are animals.  That means that they have
 rights.  When you eat meat, you're oppressing animals!

 Q:  SO ALL KILLING IS BAD?

 No, not always.  Sometimes killing can be justified, like in the Persian
 Gulf.  You have to be able to tell when an animal has rights, and when
 it doesn't.

 Q:  HOW DO I KNOW WHEN AN ANIMAL HAS RIGHTS?

 The general rule is as follows:

           IF AN ANIMAL IS RARE, PRETTY, BIG, CUTE, FURRY,
              HUGGABLE, OR LOVABLE, THEN IT HAS RIGHTS.

 Examine the following chart:

       RIGHTS                       NO RIGHTS
      --------                     -----------
       cows                         cockroaches
       cute bunnies                 flies
       dolphins in tuna nets        tuna in tuna nets
       whales                       sharks
       red squirrels                gray squirrels
       owls                         loggers
       harbor seals                 barnacles

 Q:  WOW.  WHAT ELSE CAN I DO TO BE PC?

 Hug a tree.  Rejoice each day in our cultural differences, for they are what
 gives flavor to our great country.  Get in touch with your sexual identity.
 Check your refrigerator for freon leaks.  Subscribe to National Geographic.
 Search it for neat non-Western cultural traditions and costumes.  After you
 read it, use the paper as an alternative fuel source. Try to wear clothes
 with Xs on them if they're all natural fibers. Above all, ALWAYS question
 authority!

 Q:  BUT WAIT, I THOUGHT-

 Don't worry, that's not important.

 Q:  WELL, I'M NOT TOO SURE ABOUT THIS.

 If you are feeling unsure about your motivation, just remember.  YOU ARE
 RIGHT.  It's that simple.  You, as a PC social warrior, are right.

 Q:  HOW DO I KNOW IF AN ACTION IS UN-PC?

 Good question.  It's important to know when someone is saying something
 insensitive so that you can have that person removed from society.  The
 guideline is as follows:

      Is the confrontation between two white people?
         Yes -  The liberal is right.
         No  -  The white person is oppressing the ethnic person.

 Remember, many seemingly obvious issues, such as the railroading
 of Mayor Marion Barry, or the Clarence Thomas issue, are really race
 issues.

 Here's a fun practice drill for you:  See how many newspaper articles you can
 make into race bias stories.  It's fun!  Some PCers are so good they can make
 the weather report look like a KKK pamphlet!

 Q:  WHAT SHOULD I DO IF I SEE SOMEONE DO SOMETHING NON-PC?

 It all depends on the situation.  If you are not in a position of authority,
 by all means report this activity immediately to whomever is in charge.  If
 your school leader, employer, or superior is hip to the trend of the 90s,
 she or he will take the necessary steps to have the insensitive offender
 disciplined.

 Q:  BUT ISN'T THAT CENSORSHIP?

 The Constitution never meant for racism, sexism and insensitivity to be
 espoused by anyone.  That's not what free speech is about.  Some call it
 censorship.  PCers call it "selective" speech.  Saying something negative
 about a particular race or gender is just as damaging as, say, punching them
 in the face.  We just can't allow that kind of verbal assault.

 Q:  I'VE HEARD A LOT ABOUT PC WORDS TO REPLACE "BLACK," "INDIAN." ETC.

 Yes.  That's part of the PC movement.  You see, part of the way we think
 about people comes directly from the words we use to describe them.  Take
 "black" for instance.  Why should a person be judged by the color of their
 skin?

 Q:  YOU MEAN THEY SHOULD RATHER BE JUDGED BY THE CONTENT OF THEIR
CHARACTER?

 No, I mean they should be judged by where their ancestors are from.  If your
 great grandparents are from Africa, or Asia, or wherever, then you should
 be identified by that fact.  You can even apply for special scholarships!


 Q:  I'M A MIXTURE OF FRENCH, GERMAN, ENGLISH, AND RUSSIAN.  CAN I GET ONE?

 No, there are no scholarships for any of those.  Sorry.  If you are a woman,
 however, there should be some.

 Q:  HEY, WOULDN'T A WHITE PERSON FROM LIBYA OR EGYPT TECHNICALLY BE AN
     AFRICAN-AMERICAN?

 Technically, yes.  But that's not the kind of African-American we mean.
 We mean BLACK African-Americans.  Another example:  A white South-African
 U.S. immigrant is not an African-American either.

 Q:  HOW CAN I LEARN TO MAKE MY LANGUAGE MORE POLITICALLY CORRECT?

 For more help, see the PC LEXICON at the end of the handbook.

 Q:  I'D LIKE MY CHILD TO BE PC.  WHAT CAN I DO?

 Well, for one thing, we should forcibly encourage students to volunteer
 their time with philanthropies.  Also, we should re-emphasize non-Western
 perspectives on history.  Finally, we should re-structure tests and quizzes
 to reflect cultural biases.

 Q:  I DON'T GET IT.

 Well, the way the system works now, "select" under-represented minorities
 who tend to do worse on entrance tests have lower standards of admissions
 at school and work and receive preferential treatment.  This is unfair and
 wrong.

 Q:  IT IS?

 Yes.  The truly PC way to do it is to have a different grading scale for
 different groups which gives or subtracts points from the final score,
 depending on who is taking the test.  If you are white, then you have been
 benefited by society during your life.  That means that you lose
 ten to fifteen points to make the test fair to everyone else.

 Q:  I GUESS THAT SOUNDS RIGHT.

 It IS right.  That's the beauty of PC.

 Q:  WHAT ELSE DO I HAVE TO BE CAREFUL OF?

 Humor.  PC people take every comment VERY seriously.  We will not accept
 any comment, joke, remark, or anything that sounds like it could be a
 racial or ethnic slur.

 Q:  GIVE ME AN EXAMPLE.

 "What's black and white and red all over?" has been staple humor for
 decades.  Not PC-  It can be taken the wrong way.

 In every day speech, try to use phrases like, "Isn't that the pot calling
 the kettle African-American."  Any racial jokes or jokes even mentioning
 culture or gender should be omitted.  True, this mostly limits comedy to
 the level of sitcoms, but that's a small price to pay for social equality.

 Q:  IS THAT ALL THERE IS TO IT?

 Yes.  The Politically Correct belief is essentially a recognition that
 people are diversely equal.  We rejoice in this equality by treating
 people differently based on their equal individuality.  Hop aboard the
 bandwagon...  Be PC.  Or you're an intolerant, racist, sexist insensitive
 pig.
