Political correctness in Poland

@Lyzko
So there's no source to support your claim?
As for its likelihood - so there's this gentleman you know who is still alive who knows an obscure usage of the word żydowka from at least 120 years ago. Well ... how old is he?

Since I like learning about such things, I googled it. I found no results in Polish. I found just one in English - about French in Algieria.

I also found information about Zvi Migdal but no linguistic references to the word żydowka meaning prostitute.
There is a negative meaning of the word żyd as someone mean or greedy but no negative meanings of the word żydowka.

To native speakers of Polish, should we also come up with new phrases to describe finka, we gierka, japonki or amerykanka? ;)

As an apparently educated, young Polish speaker, I can't see how you wouldn't, that is, wouldn't want to:-)

@Lyzko
And what exactly wouldn't I want?

How would you NOT want to know or "come up" with a new phrase to describe "we gierka" etc.
You seem curious.

@Lyzko
That was auto correct :) what's wrong with węgierka? :D
Out of curiosity, would you like to 'come up' with a new phrase to describe the North/South Pole? Or do you say 'nail enamel' instead of 'nail polish'? How come there's no new verb that would prevent people from using this terribly offensive verb 'to polish' ?!?!?!

The wonders and mysteries of language:-) Why does for instance English have "BENEfits" but not "MALEfits". huh? Instead we use the totally unrelated sounding, yet thoroughly 'antonymous' "DRAWBACKS", also "SHORTCOMINGS", the latter of which has nothing to do with being short, even less to do with either coming or goingLOL

Same for "drawbacks". There is no "back" in "drawbacks!

So will you help me understand your point, please?
I should be concerned about using finka or węgierka in Polish but when it comes to using '(North) Pole','to polish' or 'china etc in English, it's the wonders and mysteries of language?

You're right, I stand corrected, kaprys. The wonders and vagueries of language:-)
See you didn't catch my Anglo-Saxon irony.

Well, I never catch your irony. I'm not sure I'd call it Anglo-Saxon irony. Not sure I'd actually call it irony ... but I agree I don't catch it. ;)

I'm (very) sure, and don't feel bad, you're not the only oneLOL

Back on topic please

Bwahahha

Polish Patriots handing it to the kebab flip flopistanis for molesting a Polish woman.

Ass whooping sound track included.

No PC here. If only western European men had half the backbone that Poles do their countries wouldnt be facing thousands of rapes every year and nonstop spontaneous cultural enrichment.

Hey, easy with that anti-immigrant NAZI talk...BB told me that they are good for the economy so what's the big deal with a couple of rapes. Those, too, add to the GNP.

Suuuure they're great for the economy. That's why Merkel was demanding that other countries 'share the burden' - her words. Perhaps Merkel is a anti immigrant Nazi considering she's calling the newcomers a 'burden'? Or let's just look at dollars and cents or in this case euros. 20 billion a year goes to migrants for welfare, housing, food, etc. If you consider ancillary costs like medical care, education, prosecuting and locking them up, etc the figure is reportedly triple. That means if you do the calculations an average working German spends a months salary just supporting the migrants.

That's what I have been screaming about here, but some geniuses will still tell you that spending all that money on this human garbage is "good for the economy" because it "circulates". Pathetic.

Positive thing in Poland: you can laugh about political correctness
Downside: You have to read utter gibberish from certain people

You can laugh all you want until the pc mental disorder reaches the level where the culture of a nation is destroyed. Then it's not funny at all. Poland is lucky and will continue that way until the Western pc morons shame Polish patriots into submission. My sense is that their first target are Poland's abortion laws and the Church. Once this dam cracks and goes down, Poland's days are numbered since Poland has no borders. Just as "America's" with her 50,000,000 unborn being systematically replaced by the sewer scum.

About political correctness in Poland.

This track was played in all major radio stations and on TV back in 2005 and it was completely normal :-)
