Racist, sexist ‘master bedroom’ no longer politically correct

The PC police are at it again. In the continuing endeavor to rid the English vernacular of anything that could be offensive, the term “master bedroom” is being phased out of use in residential real estate, according to the Baltimore Business Journal.

Instead, builders are starting to use the term “owner’s suite” or “owner’s bedroom” to describe the largest bedroom in a home. A survey found that six out of 10 major Washington, D.C.-area homebuilders are making the change on their floor plans.

The reason given is that “master” is seen as offensive on two fronts: in gender, where it tends to sound masculine, and in race, where it conjures images of the slave-master.

Yes, that is the very first thing that I thought: “Owner” as in “Slave Owner”!

The left is completely insane! LOL

Oh, good lord.
I remember when “family room”, was dropped because not everyone has a family.

Black in the 90’s we designed these two master bedroom houses because the gay market was huge. They sold like crazy.

The only solution is to have a government mandate that all bedrooms must be of equal size, not just in a house, in every house.

These people are just too stupid. The phrase is “master bedroom” and not “master’s bedroom”.

What next? Am I forbidden to say “master plan”?

How about “master key”? “Master cylinder”? “Master switch”? This stupid, childish, and paranoid crap needs to go!

Then, there’s the “Master’s golf tournament”, “master plan”, “Master padlock”, or, “master baiting (for fishermen)”

How about ‘Debtors Room’?
or ‘Mortgage Payer Bedroom’?

and if the house is paid off...’Title Bearer Bedroom’...

Either way it can be called the ‘Taxpayer Bedroom’

Elmer Fudd asks, Would “Wimp Woom” satisfy all you PC harpies?

Or perhaps for all those metrosexuals who spend their night curled up in the fetal position, how about “Wimp Womb”?

How about this?

Call it “largest bedroom in the house”

That way no way is offended except the children who have smaller bedrooms. They don’t count and should be lucky to be alive and not aborted
