Suggestions to replace Master/Slave
Have you heard about LA objecting to the Master/Slave labels on tech gear?

Obviously we need some replacements - I have some ideas:
Boss/Peon
Master/Gimp
Dom/Sub
Pitcher/Catcher
Top/Bottom

I am: exasperated
Current Media: office buzz

That's what we came up with in our office yesterday! We started tossing the terms around (especially since we're having a new cluster delivered in january) about describing our systems. The sales people couldn't stop laughing.

I'm sure we can get more Hollywood jokes in here.

Hmm...

God/sheep
overlord/minion
oversensitive goober/the rest of the world

Here's a hint... if you are aware of something, and just realize that it's offensive after 20 years, it's probably not offensive. It just means that you have way too much time on your hands.

People need to be a little thicker skinned.

Then again, that article ticked me off another way. I find the whole idea of reparations for something that happened over a century ago offensive. Any reparations should have been paid within the first generation after slavery ended. Deciding to do something 3-4 generations down the line is absurd. It's punishing people who don't deserve punishment, and rewarding people who don't deserve the reward.

By that logic, we should also be seeking reparations from the descendants of industrialists that exploited child labor before child labor laws and unions got into full swing.

Then again, we should be forced to get the hell out of the country because of what we did to the american indians... oops, native americans.
