Tuesday, December 07, 2004

I remember bitching about this when it first made headlines, but I am once again reminded how stupid and sensitive people can be when I read that: The computer term "master/slave," which was banned as racially offensive by a Los Angeles County purchasing department, was named the most politically incorrect term of the year on Thursday.

If you are offended by the 'master/slave' computer term, then you have bigger issues than I can even begin to go into here. Offended? You are OFFENDED? Do you realize how ignorant you have to be that you are offended by two hard drives being called "master" and "slave"? The Los Angeles county that went along with this tripe is doing nothing more than perpetuating the thin-skin that is so prevalent in today's society. Give it a few more years and I'll be able to sue someone for saying I have brown eyes (they're hazel - I'm so offended!).

You know, I think they should change the common name for USB Keycards - Flash Card just isn't appropriate. I was flashed once by an old man in a park and the term just offends me. And I just don't feel right telling my child about the male and female electrical plugs - and how the male goes into the female. I mean, that's just not right - we have to call it something else - that's so offensive. And memory - we shouldn't refer to "memory" in a computer because we might offend Alzheimer's patients. And the microphone "jack" and headphone "jack", that just has to go, too, because that's offensive to all the people in the world named Jack. And you know how you "turn on" a computer? That's so wrong! What are we teaching our children? We simply *cannot* "turn-on" our computers anymore - a new term must be made, one that's less offensive. And I, for one, just hate the term "disc" - it's so close-sounding to "dick"; yes, yes, that offends me as well and it must be changed, too.

Political correctness offends every last one of my senses. The stupidity of the human race offends me. This entire post offends me - I am offended - the word offend offends me. I am too offended to go on.

Offensively yours,
Shanna
