Seasonal neutrality: How the politically correct are politically incorrect
Seasonal neutrality: How the politically correct are politically incorrect
Every Christmas we hear the same stories about how a school did not do their annual Christmas mass, TV hosts hide their crosses and hijabs, Buddha hides behind a tree and the Chinese Dragon is banned from public space. The all-inclusive suppression of religious and cultural identity has been the "politically correct" approach to creating an all-inclusive society. But is it really inclusive?

Someone must have been sleeping in class when the word "inclusive" was explained. They woke up a few days later during the "exclusion" class, because this is what happened when they tried to apply it in politics. To create an inclusive society open for all, we must exclude all symbols, actions and sounds that express the deepest roots of how you identify yourself. They managed to define an inclusive society as a place where showing your true colours is going to get you excluded, because someone might be offended by the fact that you're not like them.

If you are so intolerant that you get offended by a teacher mentioning the word "Jesus", you get to write a letter of complaint and that teacher is gone! If you're so intolerant that you get offended by a police officer wearing a hijab, you get to write a letter of complaint and that police officer is gone! If you're so intolerant that you get offended by Hare Kirshna-chanting at the airport, you can tell security to throw them out.

Removal of the very things that show how diverse we are is to bow for the intolerant. It creates a society where power is given to intolerance, suppression is the norm and everyone blame everyone else for being cold and exclusive.

If we want to live side by side in peace, it is time to turn this around. An all-inclusive society must be based on including not only all individuals, but all of those individuals. And the only thing we should be intolerant about is intolerance.
