I'll tell you what I want. I want a world where I can believe and think anything I choose to believe and think. I want a world where there IS NO authority at all. I want a world where as soon as you (not you personally, but you in general, applying to everyone) attempt to exercise authority over me in any way, you are banished and ostracized from the village. And the same would apply to me should I attempt to exercise authority over you in any way. I want a world of voluntaryism, which automatically implies "hands off others" and "you pilot your life." I want a world where I decide what I think of you, not you.

It really has nothing to do with Christian men, gays, gender, race, prayer, pledges, evangelicals, Christian United States, pink elephants, tooth fairies, etc. I couldn't give less of a **** about any of that. If that's your thing, fine. If not, fine. You decide if you like Andy Griffith or not. It's not for me to decide for you. Run your own life as you see fit without trying to run mine.

No, I think most people just simply want the government to leave them alone. Live and let live, too.

Some of us don't want a Christian Right Theocracy or anything that comes close to it.

I'm a liberal.

I do think that the threat of PC has been wildly exaggerated as a tool by the right wing, and exploited by people like Trump. It's not nearly as pervasive and oppressive as people who regularly imbibe right wing media think it is.

However, I went to a Northeastern Liberal University with a pretty significant SJW representation before the term existed. I'm not going to tell anyone that there isn't a lot of nonsense going on that is over the top. But for the most part, a lot of it is largely contained to the Universities themselves.

Some guy who grinds out bullets and conspiracy theories in Rockhole Texas thinks this actually effects him..when all he has to do is turn off the internet.
The problem is conservatives believe in indoctrination of students in college as well as public education. Mind you, private education does that because most are religious based... They use the farest of the left to help say they are better. The same is in the reverse. I fully agree though, PC isn't as common as you'd think. Maybe more so that we are in a post Me Too world. Listen, I have been falsely accused (not of sexual assault or harassment) but let me say, there is no proof of the claims against me and it is muddy at best while many of the accused are MOSTLY guilty but cannot be proved beyond a reasonable doubt or happened years ago. There is a difference between false claims and unproven claims. I think truly false claims aren't as common as people believed. Kavanaugh and that idiot in Alabama are "unproven" because claims haven't been proven false. They just aren't true beyond a reasonable doubt.

Wildly exaggerated?

You need look no farther than Oberlin College (a perfect microcosm of our society today) to see that the problem is very real.

I know that are people who stopped being a liberal or Democrat in part because of the SJW/P.C./snowflake mentalities. However, know of any cases where a person stopped being a conservative or Republican because of the SJW/P.C./snowflake mentalities?
