Cruising through radio stations, I listened for a moment to someone
apparently giving advice to someone raising a child new to their family.
The advice-giver opined that they did not know if the child has been raised
"psychologically correct" to be a delicate flower, but...

"Psychologically correct" struck me as a variant on "politically correct"
in its use and implications.
