To avoid offending anyone, all cities and towns should change their name to a generated GUID identifier or ‘Globally Unique Identifier’.
For example, the problematic St. Louis can become b4cb79d7-2152-44b8-86d9-4ad1b969e330.
Los Angeles (can’t have the city of angels, ‘cmon man) can be 1d9fdc78-7c8e-45f6-acdc-47681a6da9f6.
Phoenix (cultural appropriation much?) can be a2f9266e-a20a-48e4-9f58-a6cdf3179993.
Admittedly, these are unpronounceable and impossible to remember the spelling, but isn’t it worth it to not offend anyone?
Or we could look to offend everyone. Change New York City to Hymietown, Dallas to Triggerhappy Rednecks, New Orleans to Chocolate City, and Charleston to Blueblood Rednecks. And those are just the easy ones. Los Angeles to Bloods! Crips! Hollyweirdos! Haaaalp! Rather long-winded, but descriptive. Chicago can be DUCK! Buffalo can be ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ.
