PC Police Nix "Master Bedroom"

April 22, 2013

With its overtones of sexism and male dominance, the term “master bedroom” is becoming the latest victim of political correctness.

It does have a Fifty Shades of Gray sound to it, I guess, but I doubt that anyone other than the PC police have given much thought to the term “master beroom.”

The preferred substitute, “owner’s bedroom,” doesn’t do much to remove the connotation of slavery in the term “master bedroom,” though.

I’d be fine with calling it a “mistress bedroom,” to balance out all those years of using the term “master,” but I don’t think my wife would be thrilled by the term.

Here’s an idea.  Why not just call it by the term we used when I was a kid – “bedroom.”
