Thar! That Blows.

I saw this anthology and remembered your post: 28 Minutes into the Future - Kindle edition by Chrome Oxide. Literature & Fiction Kindle eBooks @ Amazon.com.
"Nine rib-tickling, irreverent short stories take aim at political correctness and blow it to smithereens—in a hail of hilarity."
Heheh. This anthology caught my interest until I saw Tom Kratman listed as a supporting credit.
Oh, that guy... Grade A nutcase, wingnut troll on the defunct Asimov's Magazine. And I'm not not a big fan of Military Sci-fi that has no more substance than a repetitive series of Rock 'em sock 'em. I'll see if my old computer will still boot up Quake 3 for that.
I speculate that this anthology bludgeons the concept; where I would prefer to see sly, irreverent satire. I ain't kickin' 4 bucks.
Geeze, I'm all in favor of Civility, Tolerance and Compassion. I just don't like when a Political Correctness meme gets self-consciously forced into a story where it's irrelevant to the plot.
Tragically Hip, as it were.
