Actually, you have unwittingly provided an excellent example with this post.

Political correctness is the disingenuous misinterpretation of something in order to virtue signal.

Well done.
I see - you demonstrate your superior virtue over us poor empty headed SJWs continuously - on my Map of Meaning anyway

It's called making an example of the primary group using this political tactic by highlighting the ways in which, in public, their self-perceived virtue is exaggerated and cherry-picked specifically for public vision.

If someone objected to calling a First Nations person a “B**** or a female Aboriginal person a “g$n” - would that be political correctness gone mad?

If that person is in consultation with the other party and can truthfully speak on their behalf, there's nothing wrong with the objection.

Wholesale, targeted vigilante enforcement by a group of unrelated zealots who express their need to see the person burn is virtue signalling in the true sense of the phrase.

It could even be said that by trying to turn the term against those who launched it, you're guilty of cultural misappropriation.

There is a conflation between what happens outside lecture theatres and what happens during the actual teaching

What are you even referencing?

Are you trying to say that the neo-marxist theory taught isn't supposed to be taken literally and acted upon in reality?

A made up thing is the dinsingenuous misinterpretation of something in order to do some other made up thing?

LOL.

So if a Group said that was offensive - then it would be wrong. I see

No. A group does not equate to or represent the thoughts of an individual by virtue of being in a group (consentually or otherwise).

You don't see shit.

So you're saying I should just walk on past when I see a burning cross in my African neighbors front yard then?

Being a white, heterosexual, man, I can only speak for (and in favor of)... white, heterosexual men?

You can speak for anyone you like.

Just don't expect anyone who recognises blatant exaggeration of interest/association to listen.

You're literally describing identity politics. You're saying there are truths that can only be understood through racial experience.

Yes, and milking the experience of others for all the brownie points its worth by assuming representation is a disgusting act.

See: virtue signalling.

interesting that you assume that's all anyone does it for. It's like you think that anything is only worth doing if it's solely for your own benefit

Oh, that's not the only reason.

Alleviating one's own psyche of guilt would be another.
