Skip to comments.Homebuilders scrap 'master bedroom' because of racist, gender-biased connotations
Posted on 04/18/2013 5:57:19 PM PDT by Past Your Eyes
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 owners suite or owners 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).

I sleep in my home’s master bedroom, i sleep alone, and it’s MY MASTER BEDROOM!
We really need a concerted effort to fight leftist Newspeak and take back the language.
We ought to be on their cases every time they try to force a politically correct euphemism on us.
By they, I mean the leftists who are constantly telling us what we may or may not say, what we mean, and what we think.
What if it’s a rented house? Tenant not allowed to use it?
I tend not to care one way or the other about stuff like this till the PC crowd tries to make like it matters, then I insist on using the traditional term just BECAUSE they’re being morons.
we have to stop using their language, affordable health care, no it’s Govt health care
illegals not undocumented
homosexuals not gay.
Every aspect of their twisted agenda is ut out front by a nice word and sadly the stupid party just goes along with it.
How may here have heard of spoken to someone and heard their key words, diversity, tolerance, social justice etc?
Oh Dear God...
There goes the Family Room and Inlaw Suite.
Won’t be long before petitions are distributed demanding SherloCk® change the name of their company
Wherre do all these liberal arseholes come from that come up with this crap! (OH, nevermind.....Obammys low information voters.....that’s where...)
Political Correctness has DESTROYED this nation!!!!!!!!!!!!!
ANd I dont give a damn what anyone says...it is the MASTER bedroom...what are they gonna do......take my guns?
(arseholes ALL of them!!)
Probably going to turn into the "Freely Chosen Alternatively Defined Familial Relation Shelter (non sexist/racist/speciesist/LGBT-phobic)". It'll take your contractor longer to talk about it than build it.
Yeah, "owner" is much better.
Also, you shouldn’t call yourself A Homeowner just because you own a home. It would be unfair and hurtful to the (sad-sack, loser) Homeowners that lost their homes and are now Homeless.
But if you think of it in the, pardon me, but “sexual domination” sense, the master bedroom should be celebrated!
I know in the automotive supplier community, about 5 yrs ago it became “politically incorrect” to talk about “master cylinder” and “slave cylinder” for brake systems.
Will ownerbating make me go blind?
With everything that’s going on in this country, this is what these fools choose to worry about?
