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."


wow. that's one of those posts you never even notice unless it's one of the first couple and then you go "yeah, that person really is an idiot"

I used to dream that I would meet a prince
But God Almighty, have you seen what's happened since?

Owner of the house, isn't worth me spit.
"Comforter, philosopher" and lifelong shiat!
Cunning little brain; a regular Voltaire.
Thinks he's quite a lover but there's not much there
What a cruel trick of nature landed me with such a louse
God knows how I've lasted living with this bastard in the house!

/ Everybody raise a glass!
// Raise it up the owner's arse!

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?


Personally, I just refer to the other matresses as "Jack" and "Ace", depending upon what I'm doing in them.

/ better than "Rooking" and "Bishoping" in any case.
// OK, "Knighting" is a good name for one of those L-shaped bunk beds.

LemSkroob: Farkall, i cant stand PC crap. Expecially where it never needed to exist. When i get rich, im going to build an old style plantation house, and tell people when i show them around the property "this is the main house, this is the barn where i keep my horse, and this is the shack where i store my ****ers"


Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: mayIFark: 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.

We've always referred to the shed out back as the n*gger quarters.

N-word Quarters? I thought those were coins that are worth 15 cents.

Ownerbation.

Has anyone pointed out yet that owner and master are pretty much the same thing? This is as retarded as refusing to use "master/slave" in reference to IDE cables or "male/female" in reference to electrical connections.

I remember hearing that phrase years ago when apartment hunting. I said that I wasn't interesting in living in a boarding house.

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.

In a stunning turn of events, many Realtors now refer to the man cave as the cock hole.


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.

Next we'll find we all ownerbate in them when we have no one else.

I'm going to have to go ahead and disagree with you there Bob.
