I believe it is a strong mark. Political correctness is in direct opposition to the truly civilized man.

    "To question is the answer...", not sure what this has to do with being PC though, and while I agree that PC is BS, it is not BS to take into account the feelings of others which is often at the heart of being PC... do unto other as they would have you do unto them (none of that Golden Rule BS, its just Bass Ackwards)...
