Not Quite Got The Hang Of Political Correctness....

....in China, where a guide for assistants at the Beijing Olympic Games caused a bit of a kerfuffle:
The guide for Chinese volunteers at the Games this summer explains that disabled people are a “special group” with “unique personalities and ways of thinking”.

The section of the manual entitled “Skills for helping the disabled” goes on to say: “Some physically disabled are isolated, unsocial, and introspective. They can be stubborn and controlling . . . defensive and have a strong sense of inferiority.

“Sometimes they are overly protective of themselves, especially when they are called crippled or paralysed. Do not use ‘cripple’ or ‘lame’ even if you are just joking.”
But it's such a progressive country...!

I only know you from what you say.

From what you say, I'd say, the Chinese show infinately more compassion to their fellow human souls than you do.

What is it ?

"you wont see me coming"

Quite ridiculous !
