So I've seen it more and more on car forums lately that folks are trying to eliminate use of terms that may cause offense to others, such as referring to what many of us grew up knowing as "Suicide Doors" simply "rear hinged doors" or something similar. The same goes for cars like the Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud III Mulliner Park Ward Drophead Coupe, aka: "Chinese Eye" coupe. Personally I am all for something that literally takes zero effort to enact, other than remembering to use the new terminology, if that means we can be even more open and embracing of people to our hobby. We all know interest in cars and car culture is on the decline whether we choose to believe it or not, so I feel we need to be as inclusive as possible, and why not, it's just being neighborly.
What's your view on this? (Please, leave any racism or hate speech at the door, that's not the point of this post.)
