fine today, politically incorrect tomorrow
I am having trouble keeping up with all the names, words and gestures that were completely innocent 10 years ago, but now are considered politically incorrect or insulting. I'm not talking about racial or sexual slurs or curse words, but rather terms that at one time were actually pleasant to hear or do.
Names: Brandon, Chad, Felicia, Karen, Stacy.
Words: niggardly, he and she, etc., male and female etc.
Gestures: making the OK symbol by rounding your thumb and index fingers.
There's a new one every week. I am afraid that eventually I won't know a term or gesture is now "wrong" and say it or do it and end up insulting a bunch of people and getting harassed on the Internet.
What ones can you think of?
