    Politically Incorrect would involve using phrases that are regarded as impolite and unacceptable to refer to certain characteristics, including age, gender, race, sexuality. It is politically inccorect to call an elderly person a 'wrinkly' or a 'coffin dodger' or an 'oxygen thief'. These phrases exist, but are not regarded as acceptable.
