The Politically Correct Issue


Welcome back to Lennon Courtney Left Alone. 

This week, we’re talking about The P.C Issue.


No. Not personal computers but political correctness. We talk about its origins and how the concept has evolved to present day. Does ‘being P.C’ stifle conversatio? How can we better engage with other peoples experiences in a constructive and considered way? We offer some food for thought this week. 

As with every issue, make sure you scroll down for our list of Outside Things of additional resources for you.

Until next Thursday for our final issue before the Christmas break!

Sonya and Brendan.
