Homebuilders Scrap Term “Master Bedroom” Because Of Racist, Gender-Biased Connotation
Quote:The “master suite” is being phased out — not from our homes, but from our lexicon.

A survey of 10 major Washington, D.C.-area homebuilders found that six no longer use the term “master” in their floor plans to describe the largest bedroom in the house. They have replaced it with “owner’s suite” or “owner’s bedroom” or, in one case, “mastre bedroom.”

Why? In large part for exactly the reason you would think: “Master” has connotation problems, in gender (it skews toward male) and race (the slave-master).
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
Main Suite is another one...

Admit nothing.  Deny everything. Demand proof.
If we lie to the government, it's a crime. If the government lies to the people, it's called politics.
Paying for welfare is slavery.
We have nothing more important to be worried about in our homes.

I wonder if they'll have to change the name of Pennsylvania's top public high school?

Masterman High School

It's named after Julia Masterman.

Yes, it really is the top public high school in the entire state. You have to be an extreme level of dork to survive at that High. You can't get your kid admitted to the school by catchment. They have to be able to test-in to get on the lottery to get enrolled there.
My computer is racist.

I have countless servers where one of the HDD's is master and the other is set to slave.

At work we got countless number of digi tapes most of them the labels start with "MASTER BACKUP..."

Who wants to sit behind the DYNO machine and kick out and affix 1,000+ labels?
Replaced it with “mastre bedroom"? Now that's just ghay.

I'm changing the name of my bedroom to the "Discipline Suite."

Fuckin racist power plant.
