I wonder why "Yank" and "Irishman" arent considered to be racial slurs like "Jap" and "Chinaman".

Will binary systems finally get to choose how they identify?

It turns out that the history of slurs and indignity of them is extraordinarily dependent on intent, context, and usage. Some of it is just PC, some of it is offensive.

As long as NASA still has the gifted people exploring space or this planet's atmosphere I really don't care what the useless PR arm of the organization does.

If we found "Yank" to be offensive, we would have asked the Brits to stop after we saved their asses.

I find it slightly amusing that we police our language so as not to mildly offend some of the most violent racists of the 20th century by using an abridgement of their nationality.

No. My Dad took a transfer from Philadelphia to Los Angeles in 1969 because he was told we are not having an Irish Catholic partner in the Philadelphia office..go west young man. He became a partner. Fast forward to mid 70's we moved to the NYC area. There were certain summer camps my siblings and I could not attend because of our heritage/religion. Same with private elementary schools and high schools. It was worse if you were Italian. Ran into this shiat in Dallas in the 90's. Waspism is still alive and kicking. We are honorary at their convenience.
