Seniors say we all need to ‘lighten up’

Dubbo seniors represent a group of Aussies who think political correctness has gone mad in this country.

A report released last week called “Modern Australian Manners” found that eight in ten seniors believe that political correctness is ruining society (86 per cent), and that trying to be politically correct all the time is not authentic (86.6 per cent).

Three quarters of seniors agree that politically correct people annoy them (74 per cent).

They use humour to lighten politically correct circumstances, with two in five admitting to having shared politically incorrect jokes (42.7 per cent).
