For example, in this discussion, I kind of like some of the terms & ideas
listed as PC ("diversity," for example), and feel neutral about others
(dorm --- residence hall, checkup--- wellness check), while others
(procurement----- purchasing) strike me as foolish and comical.
Me too. As for names applied to groups of people, I try to use whatever
label I think the people I'm referring to prefer. That's not always easy
to figure out, of course.
