I agree with what you are saying to a point - but before the term "political correctness" was coined, people were fired from work for actions outside of work. There are huge sections of various titles within the U.S. Code specifically about it relating to government employees of various types in various ways as one set of proof, and very old cases in the US as another.MadFrenchie said:If you don't believe an employee of the company can, through words alone, cause very real negative repercussions for their company that the company would have a vested interest in protecting against, then I have to hope you never work for the company I work for.sayuu said:you are literally crying about actions having consequences.Scellow said:None of them should have been fired, they HAVE THE FUCKING RIGHT to think / and say WHATEVER they want in their FREE TIME, if they did something illegal, or disrecpectfull, you can report tweet on twitter or give your lawyer a call
They got fired, i hope they'll sure ArenaNet, America is fucked upLook! Someone with a brain! A FREE THINKER! Proof that not everyone subscribes to the PC madness corrupting society.PC will be the death of free speech, and that, people, will be the death of democracy.
and F.W.I. democracy = tyrannyActions? ACTIONS?I refer to my earlier "sticks and stones" comment.Words are not actions. It's one thing to say something and something quite different to act upon those words. Had she physically assaulted someone then fair game but she didn't. She posted some comments on twitter. I mean, seriously, she posted some comments on twitter. Big fucking deal.This is exactly the kind of PC, namby pamby bollocks I'm talking about.Edit, @MadFrenchie as well. Actions, get real.Once again this is just another example showing that PC has gone beyond the pale. It shouldn't even be an issue but because of unchecked political correctness, running amok, we find this atmosphere in which fear of consequences forces people to act (over react) on the slightest perceived offense.You should not have to fear for your job because something you say may have repercussions on your company, not if you don't speak for them officially. This is the insanity of political correctness.
