  • Political correctness is a term which denotes language seen as seeking to minimize social and institutional offense in occupational, gender, racial, cultural, sexual orientation, certain other religions, beliefs or ideologies, disability, and age-related contexts, and, as purported by the term, doing so to an excessive extent.
  • Non-oppressive language is a tactic that encourages us to reflect thoughtfully and critically about the subtle and not-so-subtle ways in which language furthers social stigma and oppression. It is an attempt to practice non-hierarchical language for the purpose of building safer spaces and an inclusive society. However, nonoppressive language may sometimes not be PC, as telling our experiences sometimes means pointing out the ugly aspects of our oppressors.

In less lofty language: Being ‘PC’ means caring more about the language used than the general idea. Non-oppressive language is trying to get to the root of our thought.

Do not be proud of being PC! If you are trying to be ~radical~, then you should know that the PC ideal of not discussing the reality of oppression maintains the erasive status quo.

Semantics, semiotics and the use of the term ‘nonbinary’

Finding the right words to describe those, like myself, who don’t fit comfortably into traditional male/female genders and bodies is a bit of a tricky business. How do you contain a multiplicity in a single word? How do you indicate an infinite number of divisions? Increasingly, the term ‘nonbinary’ is used as a catch-all term. I’ve been known to use it myself. I have every sympathy with those who use it – it can be useful, and is certainly a step forward in this gradual evolution of discourse surrounding gender and sexes and being. But the niggling semantic/semiotic worries I’ve been having – well, they’ve stepped up.
