It’s a good thing the “woke movement” is purely rational and doesn’t take things too far

I mean, maybe this is a bit much… but also, is it really a hill you want to die on (not that I’m suggesting you’re aggressively against it…maybe you are maybe you aren’t)?

If it bothers some people that much, is it really that big of a deal to maybe phase out that terminology? Maybe the normalization of the word ‘Master’ watered down how fucked up it is for for one human to have that kind of domain over another human? Maybe it didn’t. But I don’t care either way and if we want to not use it, I can get on board with that even if it ultimately doesn’t change much.

50 years ago if one’s sensibilities were that delicate to be offensive easily they would be considered mentally Ill or at least emotionally unstable. Just saying…

There’s a lot of things from 50 years ago that aren’t acceptable today. It’s called progress. You seem really delicate and like you’re offended by people maybe not wanting to use terminology that referred to human enslavement before it was used for pretty much anything else. Which is a problem still present in the world today, so maybe those words should continue to have the gravity of what they refer to as to not minimize the problem that it still is.

Changing the terminology we use has little impact on your life. So again, is that the hill you really want to die on? You seem awfully sensitive about it, and the rest of us are fully capable of saying “yeah, that makes sense” and moving the fuck on. Just sayin…

Nice try manipulating my words to your benefit, snowflake!

I guess you are also concerned about all the slaves who are right this minute working for you (you probably have no idea)?

You’re proving my point with your reactions here. This is easy. Just move on. Or continue to get all worked up. I really don’t care. Only bothered to reply on the tiny shred of hope you might think about this later and realize it wasn’t worth getting all pissy about.

You’re not my enemy. I don’t hate you. Just put yourself in someone else’s shoes every now and then, yeah?

Ok, why then did you threaten my life because I hold a different opinion than you? Not very politically correct of you. Lucky for you, I don’t give a damn so I am not offended of worried.

You are not my enemy either, I’m just railing about words in many different contexts being banned because they were once used in a specific context that oppressed people.

Do you also want to ban books and control other aspects of how people think?

You’re not offended because you’re being disingenuous and know that “is this the hill you want to die on” is a common English expression. As should be apparent by our lack of a “hill”. You can’t make a sound argument against my points, so you deferred to attacking something that has nothing to do with the arguments being made. It’s a distraction technique, and you know it.

Quit your bullshit.
