Homebuilders Phase Out “Master Bedroom” Because It’s Racist

The power of political correctness know no bounds. It’s latest victim.

" 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 “owner’s suite” or “owner’s 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).

Enter the owner’s suite.

“I imagine it’s not only a more accurate description but also a more politically correct term of art,” said Steve Nardella, senior vice president of operations for Bethesda-based Winchester Homes Inc.

Either way, the “master suite” has been linguistically shoved aside.

Did we ever think America would come to this?

Ted Nugent has a good commentary on this PC crap and the American Indian.

Ayn Rand many years ago wrote something to the effect that if we are not vigilant, ideas that we regard as nonsense today will become mainstream ideas in a few years. I can remember listening to a farm radio broadcast around 1980 where they reported on the Animal Rights anti-meat protests first seen in the U.K. Some prominent musician types were involved. It sounded so ridiculous but the commentator on the local radio station warned listeners not to laugh and to watch out; this could gain traction and spread here. That commentator was prophetic...
