“This is what I find problematic with so-called politi­ cal correctness. How practically everything you do can be misread. For example, it has actually happened to me in the United States. I looked a woman in the eye and was accused of visual rape .” – I used a dirty word and was accused of verbal rape. Practically everything you do can be interpreted as aggression. We perceive any excessive proximity of other people to be violence . What fascinates me is how, on the one hand, you have explosive forms of violence, but at the same time this extremely protective attitude, even, “Just don’t come too close to me. ” I think the discourse of political cor­ rectness hides extreme violence.
