Python joins movement to dump 'offensive' master, slave terms

I tend to find that when an organisation reaches the point where such things become a consideration rather than, say, concentrating on achieving the product/service they provide, that's the point where things start to go downhill.

People literally have too much time on their hands if they care about a terminology such as this. What next, blacklist/whitelist being racist? Male/female connectors not including an intersex variant?

Just code the damn thing, nobody's actually bothering to writing code that's both functional and yet subtly racist
