PC

adjective Acronym
Politically correct
 
This word came into usage in the age of heightened cultural and political awareness. With the feminist, civil, and gay rights movements, the general public can no longer use sensitive words, such as “gay” or “retarded” as synonyms for “stupid” because of the respective communities that those words offend.
Etymology : This is an acronym for the words “politically” and “correct”
