Bumping this up because of the use of the term Special Master when talking about the raid on Trump.  The term master isn’t offensive there apparently.

There are dozens of examples that can’t be changed. This was a huge issue in 2020 because people and the media were getting tired of Covid. So they needed another big issue. It’s died down considerably since then.

All over yet another word to politically correctly please the Democrats.

A retarded person is no less retarded whether you call him retarded or mentally challenged! It's one of those feel good group huggy sort of... stomp on our freedom of speech tests... yet again.

Well... if they want me to call them a fellow human... I'll be more than glad to continue calling them weasels!!! (* ROFLMAO *)

“Retarded” is not used because it is a form of ridicule and extremely negative. I understand that and I agree.  Master is only negative in terms of slavery and past history and should not be used in a setting where it brings back similar relationships as existed during slavery, like a boss with Black employees. But a bedroom? Everyone can buy houses with master bedrooms, whether black, white or anything else. It’s not referring to slavery or elevating it at all.

So retarded was not ridicule or extremely negative until somebody determined it was. Whatever body of people determined that needs to read the 1st Amendment.
