I tried to tell that to my dom but she punched my teeth out, told me to only speak when spoken to, and sent me back to my slave quarters.

Thanks Mistress Jazzercize, you never slip out of character.
 
2013-04-17 01:53:23 PM
Wow. That's one of those phrases you never really think about until someone points it out and you go, "Yeah, that really is racist."


Just like that brouhaha years ago about master/slave drives on a computer.
 
2013-04-17 02:01:11 PM
I guess there aren't any safe words.
 
2013-04-17 02:01:15 PM
Master, Owner...what's the difference in 1860?
 
2013-04-17 02:01:52 PM
I'm gonna start calling it "whitey's room."

And about that FARK handle. You still going around killing people with reckless abandon?

I prefer the sexytime suite.

Uh, no...and my post was intended to be more subtle and clever than most people will get on the first read.

I have always been partial to the "Boom Boom Boudoir"
 
2013-04-17 02:52:52 PM
Well, since most homes in my area contain more than one family, I can see this.
 
2013-04-17 02:52:57 PM
Fark political correctness.

Let's start calling the other rooms of the house slave bedrooms.

/Kids are slave labor for many anyway, so name would make sense.
 
2013-04-17 02:53:24 PM
What should I call my Slaves' Quarters from now on?
 
2013-04-17 02:54:18 PM
But that is where I dominate my possessions!
 
2013-04-17 02:54:27 PM
But is the bathroom connected to my bedroom still racist?
 
2013-04-17 02:54:40 PM
Fine....I'll call it the Boom Boom Room.

Mine has been the MASTERbation suite the past few months. Cant wait til that damn girl comes back grumble grumble.
 
2013-04-17 02:55:09 PM
It wasn't too many years that I recall people biatching about how multiple hard drives in a single computer were referred to as master and slave.

Get the hell over yourself.
 
2013-04-17 02:55:09 PM
I always took it to mean "Master Bedroom" as in all the other bedrooms are its biatch.

My rule of thumb is fugget. Going to the master bedroom to read now.
 
2013-04-17 02:56:10 PM
Shouldn't it be the "masturbatorium" for most of you?
 
2013-04-17 02:56:55 PM
'Rumpus room' was wrong? No wonder the real estate agent looked at me like that.

2013-04-17 02:58:29 PM
And since I'm renting now, I really don't like the idea of "owners' suite". My landlord is creepy enough already.

Why is it racist? Just because the word "owner" makes you think of slavery doesn't mean it has to refer to black/white slavery. People of roughly the same color have tried to "own" each other for thousands of years before white people discovered brown people.

*clicks article*

Oh.. they weren't saying "owner" is racist, they were saying that "master" is racist and "owner" is better... ooooookayyyyyyy

I have seen the light...

I'm getting rid of the racist master cylinder in my car.

An no more watching of the offensive Masters Golf Tournament.

I'm changing all the Master Locks in my house to Kwikset.

And I will no longer claim to be Master of my domain... I am now Owner of my domain.

/You know who else phased out masters?
 
2013-04-17 03:01:10 PM
Um... Main. That's my suggestion. Owner's not better than master if you're trying to get away from a naming convention that I bet goes back further than we're thinking.

I'll take, "Things That Don't Matter A Lick But People Will Get All Pissy About Anyway" for $400, Alex.

Yeah, this is a moronic attack on the english language.

Because "master" has only ever had one meaning. Go fark yourself, morons.
 
2013-04-17 03:03:04 PM
I always thought it meant the best room in the house. Master.

oooops.

But I recently learned my favorite phrase "What a gip" is racist as well so I seem to be slow on the uptake.
 
2013-04-17 03:03:51 PM
I find the term Bedroom idiotic. There is more sh*t in there than just my bed.

I'm going into the Master Couch and Chair room to stare at the entertainment panel now but I gotta make a stop the Oven and Refrigeratorroom first.

My friend calls his the Slave Cave.

I'm not sure that's the PC term, though.

Old farmhouses are weird.

My hopes for a man cave are not looking good.
