Not that it’s in any way new; I saw complaints about the master/slave terminology several years ago. And considering the trends, I am sure the slaves &co will eventually go the way of the gender-neutral he. And of course ultimately it does not matter one way or the other. But it is annoying that people who are concerned about this want to burden others with their awareness as well.
Linguistic changes such as these rarely occur by simply introducing a possible substitute and allowing it to peacefully coexist with the older variant to see which one eventually wins out. No, these changes generally happen by censoring the older variants out.
And of course the narrative is that those who are uncomfortable with these changes are the despicable white men (whose opinion isn't worth shit anyway).
