There’s been a lot of talk recently about a revival of “PC,” much of it centering on the idea that identity politics debates are leaving people afraid to speak their minds for fear of being attacked or misunderstood.

I tend to think those concerns are a bit overblown, but I understand and sympathize with them, and so I’m creating a space on this site for people to raise issues that they don’t feel comfortable broaching openly elsewhere. Got a question you’re worried about asking? Ask me. Got an opinion you feel is unfairly excluded from lefty debate? Speak up. If I share your view, I’ll say so and take the heat. If I don’t, I’ll say why without flaming you. Either way, I’ll give you a platform and open up a dialogue. We’ll start the conversation, and we’ll see where it goes.

You can ask questions (or make statements) in comments here, or submit them over at Anonymously, if you like.

One disclaimer before we start: I’m just a middle-aged white guy who’s spent some time thinking about some stuff. I can’t give you permission or absolution for anything. All I can do is tell you what I think and give other people the opportunity to do the same.

Here are the questions I’ve answered so far. I’ll update this post as new ones go up:
