So PC, bro

In making a comment on differences in food cultures within a same geography based on different religion, I found an apology emanate unexpectedly from mother hoping that she was not being sectarian, but could not find the ‘correct’ word instead choosing ‘sexist’.

Definitely brings out the problem with political correctness and the inability to actually talk about difference without feeling like you are treading on eggshells. It should be a concern that people cannot reflect on the difference between being discriminatory instead finding it problematic to appreciate non-homogeneity.
