    Political correctness

    It seems like no matter what you do someone will be offended......

    A postcard featuring a cute puppy sitting in a policeman's hat advertising a Scottish police force's new telephone number has sparked outrage from Muslims.

    The advert has upset Muslims because dogs are considered ritually unclean and has sparked such anger that some shopkeepers in Dundee have refused to display the advert.

    Re: Political correctness

    Funny - all three ads on the site are for Muslim matrimonial sites. I can't even read the top one, it's apparently not in English:)

    Re: Political correctness

    The thing that bothers me is that people get offended by things that are part of the dominant culture which they chose to move into.

    Re: Political correctness

    I have no sympathy for people who move into a place and then demand that everyone else adapt to THEM.

    Whether it's people complaining about hog lots, or airport noise, or muslims complaining about dogs in ads, they can all go back to where they came from, if you ask me, if they don't like it.

    Unless it's eastern Iowa or any of Nebraska. Those folks should change their cultures.
