There's a difference between being respectful and being too afraid to say anything that MIGHT possibly offend someone and incite punishment or embarrassment as a result. Political correctness is no longer defined as terminology that is neutral to all races, religions, and genders for the purpose of equality—it's now a term used to avoid any type of confrontation and to avoid "hurting someone's feelings" because it could damage your reputation or personal liberties. People aren't politically correct out of the kindness of their own hearts; they do it to keep themselves safe and out of the public eye's scrutiny.
