I'm not fat. I'm outwardly mobile.

Wow, 'untruth'? Newspeak much?

I didn't know "slutty" was no longer PC! I'll really have to stop using that around the office.
Jun 20th, 2012 at 19:21 GMT
Aww. My ****ing comment got bleeped.
Jun 20th, 2012 at 19:49 GMT
Is "panhandler" really considered less "politically correct" than "beggar"?

I guess every time I get drunk I'm an alcoholic.
Jun 20th, 2012 at 21:21 GMT
Fun idea. I'm not sure that all of them count as less PC. Pretty sure that vertically challenged is still "rude"
Jun 20th, 2012 at 22:25 GMT
Out of these 30 terms that got updated to "politically correct" terms, two should have been. TWO. maybe three. You may disagree with me, but I personally think this whole "political correctness" is a whole bunch of over sensitivity mixed with a little bit of bullsh**

Physically challenged also applies to people who were on Double Dare.

I'd much rather have somebody call me short instead of vertically challenged. The latter implies that it's not genetics, that I'm just to bad at being able to grow.

What an incredibly stupid mix of joke terms like "vertically challenged", non-euphemisms like "slutty/promiscuous", and genuine attempts to remove offensive terms like "Indian". It's embarrassing that this was editor-picked.

I've never figured out why stewardess is an undesirable term.

Can I double Up-Arrow the Double Dare comment?

Better than "physically challenged" is "differently abled".

Librarians work in libraries. Media specialists work in media centers, like school libraries. At least in all the jobs I've ever seen/had as a librarian.

This quiz is quality-challenged.

Many of these terms are not necessarily more 'politically correct' than the terms you say they have replaced, but just more accurate. 'Blind' implies the inability to see anything, whereas 'visually impaired' accounts for the possibility of being partially sighted. And the use of non-gender-specific terms such as housekeeper or letter carrier is not political correctness, just common sense - gender roles aren't what they used to be.

@Tahnan: You, sir, are the Jay Sherman of Sporcle. I honestly think they should hire you as a quiz critic. Think about it:
"To say nothing of the bland color scheme and overindulgent acceptance of alternate answers, the game's half-baked concept and slipshod execution speaks largely to the quizmaker's careless eagerness to churn out a product, regardless of it being one that is educational or even entertaining. As a result, what the Sporcler encounters is the lesser parts of better quizzes hastily mashed together in a shoddy Frankensteinian patchwork. Truly, this 'Mentally Stimulating Diversion' might be better dubbed 'Menially Stink-u-lating Detritus.'"[1/5 Globes]
As the editor who picked this quiz, I totally stand by the decision and I'd do it again. But I honestly wish there were more users like you who could express a brutally honest opinion in an intelligent way.
(Also @jdmerkel: I grew up on that show, and you had me laughing for a good five minutes. You ever notice how nobody ever "double dared" because they knew the answer and thought the other team didn't have a clue? They never knew the answer. It always went to the physical challenge. The game was inherently flawed.)

@druhutch: It stinks!

A nice brain storm of words... no wait I mean 'thought shower'!
Jun 26th, 2012 at 07:59 GMT
@Tahnan: ahem, its "fragrantly challenged" at this quiz.
Jun 27th, 2012 at 04:07 GMT
Couldn't 'Promiscuous' work for 'used' too...?
Jul 2nd, 2012 at 07:50 GMT
The only thing I could thing of during this quiz was George Carlin's stand up routine about euphemisms. Great quiz!

Punishment and negative reinforcement are different things. Negative reinforcement refers to something unpleasant that stops when the subject does well, whereas punishment is something unpleasant that takes place after the subject performs an action that is being discouraged.
Jul 7th, 2012 at 21:06 GMT
Meh, seems a bit "difficulty challenged" and "overtimed". Clever, though.

The Double Dare comment is the best comment I've seen on here in a while.
