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.

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."

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

The Master - The Doctor's arch-nemesis (well, okay, he wanted to or has enslaved, but whatever)

Settle down, now. These threads about some organization trying to do something "PC" always devolve into strawman executions. No one has come out and "whined" that they have a problem with the term master bedroom. A group of businessmen made a decision that based on their knowledge of the term's origin it owuld be better not to use it. So, lets not start biatching about how these imaginay super-sensitive people are ruining the world.

You know what's weirdly accurate about that picture?  My parents left me alone in the house for three weeks when I was two years old.  When they came back, they'd found that I'd latched onto a sawhorse and behaved as though it were my mother.  I don't remember much of it, but I still don't feel loved unless I end up with splinters.

Never once have I parsed that as "The Master's Bedroom." I always thought "master" meant "main." As in, "this is the main bedroom."
 
2013-04-17 03:53:50 PM  

gopher321: 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.


Know what else is weird when you stop and think about it? King and queen sized matresses. Single, twin, and full are all sort of vaguely size related... then suddenly it becomes weirdly monarchical and gender-based. Wtf? Why not just large and extra large?

I was having a conversation with a realtor a few weeks ago who claimed that they are no longer allowed to use terms like "walk to shops" or "walk to subway" in ads because it discriminates against the handicapped.  He also said there was a push to get rid of the term walk in closet for the same reason.

This, basically.

That, or I took "master" to mean "superior", as in "this is the best bedroom in the house".  Either are accurate.

Randy Creaser, owner of D.C.'s Creaser/O'Brien Architects PC, said he ditched "master" in the early 1990s in his home designs. He vaguely recalled a few lawsuits brought against builders over the phrase. Pulte spokeswoman Valerie Dolenga said Pulte made the shift maybe three or four years ago.

Somebody filed a lawsuit over the phrase master suite?

Well, of course it's the "owner's bedroom". So are all the other bedrooms. That's what "owner" means for fark's sake. They own every room in the house. Sheesh.

CheekyMonkey: uncleacid: My hopes for a man cave are not looking good.

I'll admit "man cave" bugs the crap out of me. It used to just be called a "den." That had a certain dignity to it.

"Man cave" makes it sound as though I am a lumbering brute who just needs some place to bang rocks together, while at the same time (apparently) too much of a hen-pecked man-child to be able to do what I enjoy elsewhere in my own home...

Funny how through language alone, we've managed to take what was once a symbol of status and privilege in the household, and turn it into something like a bathroom...a shameful necessity, at most.
