Several Good Points on Political Correctness

The gentlemen of Power Line have been discussing a Toronto ordinance that prohibits any activity that is "degrading to men or women through sexual stereotyping." The upshot of this is that Toronto resident and Miss Universe Natalie Glebova was prevented from participating in a local festival in her role as Miss Universe. John Hinderaker makes a very good point about this showing that political correctness has lost its liberation bearings and has become the attempt to control the thoughts of those who supposedly can not control their own. Fortunately, the city council of Toronto has reversed course.

As I said, the article has several good points to it. But who am I kidding, the post is worth a look if only for the picture.
