The article presents the author's views on the issue of political correctness (PC). In the author's view, in this era when challenging racism and homophobia were not seen as the domain of "busybodies", the contributors would no doubt have extolled the virtuousness of their anti-oppressive credentials. He thinks that in his 26 years of practice he has never felt that he was "putting clients down by using politically correct words". He also feels proud of not offending others.
