Default Please Don't Call it The "Master Bedroom" Anymore

Good job America. Homebuilders are phasing out 'Master Bedroom' in favor of 'Owner's Suite' because the original is flat out just too racist. Friggin Idiots

This is true. I have not noticed it before. But I deal with builder blue prints every day. They are noted as owners suite AND owners bath

You all know the real situation, it is the Queen"s room all the way, that is unless you have not figured out who the real master of the house is.

I would say Mistress but that could possibly get those married in trouble trying to explain that.

This country is really starting to suck on the PC level.

It never even crossed my mind that there could be a racist angle with that. I've owned my own home for 15 years and never considered the master bedroom anything more than the parents' or owners of the house's room.....and the use of suite in a home is stupid.

Maybe the Master Bedroom needs to be changed to:

Then we can be politically correct and not offend anyone.

Too many white people have some kinda built in guilt....I don't. I come from poor-arse Robertson County sharecroppers. Farming cotton on another man's land for just a cut of it. My great-granddad was the 20th century south's version of a slave....a poor, white sharecropper. I also hate all races of people equally, based mostly on their other attributes. Mostly I just hate stupid people.

I'm with you bro....that's ghetto talk for "brother" if you didn't know. If I got offended every time someone called me "Big Stud" or "Cat Daddy Sexy" I'd never get anything done around here. How does calling that lady "Ching Chong Lee" hurt anything other than her feelings? It didn't keep her from getting her order filled. It didn't keep her from getting a job....at the laundrymat. It didn't do anything but offend her feelings....tough crap. Life ain't fair. I missed out on a bid on a project today because they had to have a certain percentage of minority participation. Someone with a higher bid than me and certainly less-qualified than us will get that job because I'm white...that's hurting someone because of their race. But it's ok..I'm Good Enough, I'm Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like Me!
