Apparently the Term “Master Bedroom” is No Longer a Politically Correct Term

This may make me sound old, but do you remember the days when you could say something without being corrected for not being politically correct?  It seems more and more terms that have become mainstay are no longer acceptable.  When people start looking for a new home, they first ask how big is the master bedroom.  I know I did. Well welcome to 2013 where the term master bedroom is not a PC anymore.2003 Christmas House Master Bedroom

Apparently, more and more builders and realtors are calling the main big room in your house formerly know as the “master bedroom” the “owners suite”.    Last I checked not many homes have suites in them, but again, I could be wrong.

This just annoys me.  Maybe I’m just easily annoyed.  So where did this whole thing come about?

According to

Why? In large part for exactly the reason you would think: “Master” has connotation problems, in gender (it skews toward male) and race (the slave master).

Enter the owner’s suite.

“I imagine it’s not only a more accurate description but also a more politically correct term of art,” said Steve Nardella, senior vice president of operations for Winchester Homes Inc.

So I guess the next time you are in the market for a new home or your selling yours, make sure to call your bedroom or the biggest bedroom in the home the “owners suite.”
