John Waters: Extreme Enforcers of Political Correctness are Rich Kids

From GQ:

So is your point of view that we need to find something to break bread over?

Or at least, openly talk, because they’re not going to change their minds if we act like they’re stupid. You know, the insane political correctness – even though it’s mostly correct – is gonna make Trump win. It’s a class issue. I promise you, in the neighbourhoods in Baltimore that are really struggling with poverty, they’re not worrying about pronoun usage. I’m not saying that some don’t! But it’s rich kids’ schools who are the most stringent police of it. I never understood what a trigger warning was, I thought you went to college to have your values challenged. I thought that was the point of education.
