How about master and slave drives?
Or male and female pipe connectors?
Iíll bet if you studied the etymology of just about any language used today you would have to discard half the words due to their origin.
Wacky.

Should we have this thread locked since it seems we are all in agreement on the question?

A post on Imgur is of 4 images with the following quotes:
The Simpsons will no longer have white actors voice non-white characters - The New York Post

Texas realtors will stop using "Master" to describe bedrooms, bathrooms - TMZ

Episodes of The Office and Community are being edited on their respective streaming
services to remove scenes where characters appear in blackface - IGN

The white man will try to satisfy us with symbolic victories rather than
economic equity and real justice - Malcolm X

Others think companies are either desperate to do something to show they're anti-racist, but are
clueless, or they're doing this as a substitute for anything that might actually cost them money.

There is no slippery slope fallacy when talking about progressives. Itís literally in the name.
