"The authors of the revised spec, however, missed the memo that master-slave terminology is inconsistent with inclusive development communities and has been purged from various open source projects. The almost 3,000 page spec is littered with the terms – each appears about 2,000 times."
Pffftt... that's so funny. Wait? You're not joking?
Quoting from Reddit user nanodano:
Next on the list of things deemed too offensive:
Use of the term 'female' and 'male' when referring to adapters
Use of the term 'kill' when referring to ending a process
Use of 'whitelist' and 'blacklist'
The newly changed 'parent' reference because now people will say 'kill the parent' when referring to killing the master process
The newly changed 'parent/worker' relation because it insinuates children are no more than workers to parents
EDIT: more, contributed by others
Use of the term 'classes' because the class system represent a history of inequality
Use of the term 'whitespace' because it shows a color bias
Using the term 'inheritance' because it's not fair that all objects do not have equal permissions
Use of the term 'penetration testing' in security because it can taken as a sexual reference
