Guante: A Visit From the PC Police (VIDEO)
New video! It's a new poem/PSA/collaboration with Linebreak Media about reframing the idea of "political correctness" to be less about censorship and more about choosing to not use needlessly hurtful language. Please share, re-post, blog, etc. if you like it.
Especially since this issue comes up every few months in the media, and pretty much every second of every day for people who pay attention, I'm hoping this piece can be a resource for people who are tired of saying/typing this kind of stuff over and over again.
