Things are not only getting out of line, people are going nuts. What is next?
No one complains about "whitey" "fatty" "old man or "old lady". I am sure there are many others. In the meantime profanity is ok, even on Delphi.

Primary bedroom.  It’s funny that Master is an old term, which began to mean accomplished at something. In Britain it refers to a child who isn’t old enough to be called Mister yet.  Our country is very ethnocentric to think we created the word.

I can remember when my grandmother would address birthday cards and the like to "Master Merlin's Dad."  Haven't seen that usage in many decades.  Primary bedroom would work, so would largest.  Neither have the pazazz realtors want, however.  I'm sure most prospective buyers like to think of themselves as "master of their own castle."

I’m sure women buyers don’t want to be masters of their own castles.  That is also an outdated concept.  What if the primary bedroom isn’t the largest?  Usually those have their own bathrooms but sometimes other rooms do too.  I’m curious to see what the decorating shows call the bedrooms now.

Wonder if someone is trying to come up with a better set of names for beds?  King, queen, double, twin?

King and queen are out of date.

I haven't kept up with the realty business since I bought my house.  I'm glad you have and know the details.

Good point.  Can we use jumbo, large, regular, and expresso?

Remembering my kids and their first beds, I'd suggest jumbo, large, regular and destructible.

Haha.  That works.  I like your alternate name for "twin."
