But some words are more disruptive than others. Consider marketing.Honestly, I actually dislike this because I feel it is just the equivalent of rearranging the deck chairs, and then pretending the new rearrangement is magically better.
It reminds me of a Japanese term for replacing an old word that is now considered bad with a newer word. And then eventually the newer word is considered bad and replaced with another newer word. And so on.
Being "speciesist" isn't any better than being "racist." They're both nasty and prejudiced.
That's why I get so irritated when people complain about "race" for this and then think "species" is any better.
All that literally does is just slap a new coat of paint on the same broken wall you could say. It doesn't change anything.
Can you imagine ANY other product using the word "race"?
