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.


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

DROxINxTHExWIND: A group of businessmen made a decision that based on their knowledge of the term's origin it would be better not to use it.


So... a solution to a problem that doesn't exist?

"More" is a terrible safe word.  Found out the hard way.

This is farking stupid.  The head of the household is always considered the Master of the house, whomever that may be.

As a matter of fact, any unmarried male is formally referred to as Master until they get married and become Mister.

The Crepes of Wrath: 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.

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.
