Where I come from, " PC " ranks high on the list of important character traits. It's viewed as a sign of a good upbringing. It indicates a balanced, collected, well-adjusted and self-assured personality type.

Whether it's a high-stepping, self-centered, trust-fund blue-blood, or a disabled homeless vet on a street corner begging for change, everybody wants to be treated with dignity and respect. That's a point I've heard made by practically everyone I know virtually every time they feel that they've been denied such treatment in one way or another.

Perhaps that's why to me, the initials "PC" have always stood for "Polite" and "Courteous."
