Examples of Political Correctness gone too far

I think the world has gone crazy with "social justice", and "political correctness". You can't say anything anymore without offending somebody or being attacked by sjw's. Has anyone got any good examples of political correctness gone too far?

Edit:People don't seem to understand what I'm saying, so basically I'm looking for examples of people like feminazis and trannies flipping out over minor things

You're asking us to produce examples to explain why you think what you think?

It may not be politically correct to say so, but I think that's your job, PhsycoGinger.

What exactly is it you can't say that you feel the need to say OP?

Would you consider it a minor thing to use the word 'trannies' on a public Humanities forum?

I don't know about examples of political correctness, but I think we've certainly got an example of a pwecious snowflake desperately in need of something to take offence at.

A good sense of humour and a thick skin is what is needed in today's society.

Nobody can take that away from you.
