There sure are a lot of people getting very offended by a rather small change

Yet hardly anyone seems concerned about, whether new terms being used will create confusion as lots of different organisations decide on different terms.

So you believe it's an idiotic change - fair enough. Why?

If it's just because you don't like that someone else says those words offend, then aren't you more or less just as sensitive as those you might deride for being too easily offended by harmless words?
