When political correctness stops you
Jane Marwick told a story this morning of a young couple who encountered an uncomfortable situation over the weekend at the cinemas with another couple acting inappropriately, but political correctness may have got in the way of addressing the couple.
Jane Marwick and Peter Vlahos discussed the situation and spoke with Dr Lauren Rosewarne from the University of Melbourne’s School of Social and Political Sciences about when political correctness gets in the way.
“It’s not for the people around that couple to parent them, I think your usher is the best option,” Dr Rosewarne told 6PR Breakfast.
Our listeners had their say and shared their experiences; listener Travis took his son to the movies this weekend, but his four-year-old son started to act up in the middle of the movie, “I took it upon myself to get up and leave out of respect for the paying customers.”
