Realtors Change Name of ‘Master’ Bedrooms; Wine Org. Changes Way It References ‘Master’ Sommeliers

The purge continues, moving into the ludicrous as it goes.

Apparently the left believes that the word “master” has only one meaning and is never,  was never used in any other way in the history of the world.  Sigh.

I am really just over the crazy, but here we are, now lefties are changing the names of “master bedrooms” and “master sommeliers” and who knows what’s next? Master’s degrees? MCs at events and in bands? Masterpiece? Master at Arms?  Chess master?

In Texas, a realtor group is seriously changing the name of master suites, bedrooms, bathrooms.  It’s so surreal that I had to make sure it wasn’t the Bee.

The Houston Association of Realtors will use “primary” to describe bedrooms and bathrooms on its listing service and replace the word “master.”

The move comes after several members raised the issue and called for a review, according to CNN affiliate KPRC.

Amid increasing calls for racial justice, “master” has fallen out of favor due to its association with slavery.

The world of wine is also gripped with guilt and shame over slavery, apparently, and are now changing the way they reference master sommeliers.

A prestigious wine organization will stop its common use of “master” with a sommelier’s surname as part of an effort to be more inclusive and to help diversify the wine industry.
The organization, the Court of Master Sommeliers, Americas, said in a statement last week that it wanted to play a part in diversifying the industry in the wake of nationwide unrest and conversations about institutional racism prompted by the killing of George Floyd.
It has been common to use the term “master” with someone’s last name as a title for master sommeliers, Devon Broglie, the chairman of the court’s board of directors, said in an email on Sunday. In the future, the organization will cease its use of the singular term in favour of the full term “master sommelier” with a person’s surname in all formal communication and programming.

Seriously, this does what for whom?  Oh, right, it signals that they are “woke” to the rest of the wokest wokies.

When the most common response to your virtue-signalling crumb from the table token wokeness is a huge eyeroll and a belly laugh, then maybe you’ve gone too far and focused on the wrong thing?

Obviously these groups can do whatever they like, but the level of absurdity keeps getting ratcheted up past eleventy, effectively undermining whatever good these deluded people think they are accomplishing.

  1. A sort of explanation “why???” all these corporations are now into supporting Burning, Looting, Marauding, as there is “doxxing” “boycotting” that has become a part of “justice” that is socialist kangaroo courts.

    Why can’t our leaders bring themselves to condemn anti-social violence? ….
    …. What is not is the way that mayors, governors and members of Congress have not just tolerated, but endorsed, mob violence as an acceptable weapon of social change. …..

    [Bobby] Kennedy said, “The victims of the violence are black and white, rich and poor, young and old, famous and unknown.
    They are, most important of all, human beings whom other human beings loved and needed. No one — no matter where he lives or what he does — can be certain who will suffer from some senseless act of bloodshed.
    And yet it goes on and on. Why?
    What has violence ever accomplished?
    What has it ever created? … No wrongs have ever been righted by riots and civil disorders. …
    [A]n uncontrolled, uncontrollable mob is only the voice of madness, not the voice of the people.”

    This article in part conceded, pandering to the BLM, granting “there is an underlying discontent with the rate of progress in racial equality”. as if there is no change since Bobby Kennedy’s time.

    But the latter half of the article picks up on the universalism of digital social media, and how that power has been harnessed, that it now has a self feeding inertia, also harnessed by academia & media.

    The BLM & “social justice warriors” have all created a fear, that is harnessed to control for supposed “feel good” “kindness” “loving” purposes.
    Loss of job, a feeling of insecurity, even loss of your home.
