I'm watching the news last night and they run a story on a group of people working to stop a school from running a play written by the local drama teacher. In fact, they're going to Federal court seeking an injunction. The play, entitled "Fuggedaboudit", was viewed by the group as promoting stereotypes about the Italian-American community. Here's a link to the story. While watching this, I started wondering when we as a nation (world?) will once again be able to make fun of ourselves without constantly trying to pander to the sensitivities of every group around. Now I'm all for insuring that people have the ability to work and live in an environment that isn't openly hostile to them, but at what point do we decide that we're big enough to take a little teasing? Perhaps I've got it easy because I'm a middle-class white semi-Christian guy in his upper 30's, so haven't had to deal with a lot of stereotypes (aside from the nerdy engineer and Mac geek ones) in my life, but all of this seems overboard. At some point, will the pendulum swing the other way? Will PC become passé?
