The PC police are horrified by just about everything.

You can't dismiss everything as "just words." Words have power.
Indeed they do. Which is why they should not be censored in any way. If an argument has merit it will stand, if it does not then it won't. The best way to dismiss any argument or attitude which you think is false is to expose its weaknesses to the light of day, not to let it gain power fermenting in the shadows.
