One theme that has been getting some play since the election is the possibility — nay, likelihood — that the sun is finally setting on the forces of political correctness. Our own J.E. Dyer expounded on this briefly in her excellent “Friday in freedom grab bag” roundup in which she wrote of the “sense of relief and liberation” some Americans are feeling “just to be able to talk about life and issues and things and not have it all be because of Team Obama’s next move toward authoritarian collectivism.”
Consider: did you ever in your life want to talk about men having “equal access” to the women’s restroom? Can you believe we were condemned to talk about that for so many months, egged on by the president and the U.S. Department of Justice?
Now people are out there kind of stretching their muscles, looking around, and thinking, Hey, real life is back!
Another sign that the fog may finally be lifting comes anecdotally in the fate of a much-maligned article in “Cosmopolitan” that takes a dim view of this year’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show.
