When history shows a number of new terms introduced over the years,
and each, after a while, picks up the taint of being derogatory, you
eventually figure out that
the word itself isn't the real problem.
Using the tainted water analogy, if the person serving your water has
typhoid, asking for a new glass from the same waiter won't help much.

I'd just like to second what Ron said. We keep hearing about how organisers
would like to "get Young People in", but then express disdain for the things
we care about, such as avoiding offensive language.
