People always discriminate against someone. Be it black, chinese, short, fat, thin, ginger, blonde, pale, you name it. It's why it's stupid to police any of it. People need to stop being offended so damn much and that's how you solve this problem. Changing and policing language is retarded and doesn't solve anything, it just makes people even more sensitive and triggered when something does happen to reach their ears or eyes. Just grow a freaking pair and move on, jesus. It's not that hard to hear something offensive on your behalf and not perform a complete meltdown. People joke of my national stereotypes, of my skin color, of my hair color, my gender, whatever, it's not end of the world. Just laugh at it and move on.

Reminder this is TechPowerUp and this thread is in programming and webmastering.

Back on topic: it's actually incredibly easy to emulate slavery in object oriented programming. A lot of programs already have classes defined for people. All that class needs is an Owner property and bam, foundations are laid for slavery in code.

I think that's really the crux of it: anything that isn't exactly what I described isn't slavery, it's simply a relationship. Case in point: children can be considered slaves to their parents which can be considered their masters. Children aren't property ergo, they can't be owned therefore, it's not slavery but it is still a master/slave relationship.

I don't know much about Slovenia or national stereotypes, but the land itself looks beautiful. I know Slavs got the worst end of the stick in European history (isn't the word Slav itself based off of "Slave"? :\ Correct me if I'm wrong.. I'm not trying to be disparaging), but I believe they'll eventually be what holds Europe up. They already experienced Leftism gone awry (Soviets). They know better.
Oh we got plenty of stereotypes like being a nation of drunks (we even have a drinking line in our anthem lol) and suicidals :D Btw, "Slav" or "Slavs" doesn't originate from "slave" or "slavery". Instead it originates from "slovo" roughly describing "people who speak same language". "Slava" also has connections to word "glory".

@FordGT90Concept
In programming and programs it's also often used "parent" and "child". Just wait till fruitcakes jump on it and start screeching at assuming one's relationship or family tree role and age... They just haven't got hold of it just yet. But they will if we allow this lunacy to continue...

Is it wrong of me to say I am enjoying watching the western world now set itself alight?

Strange events happening, even with programming.

The concept of using master and slave for details of hardware existed for a ridiculous amount of time too. Back in the 70's it was used often in tier structures in IBM. Every now and then I hear older techies mention it, my dad especially.

People are over sensitive for nothing.

Right again. Next time don't start this type of discussion; if you start it it'll be heated, deal with it.
I’m confused. It’s not his thread and he didn’t start the discussion.

I've used "main" and "worker" or "parent" and "child." I've never used "master" and "slave" and the thought has never occurred to me.
I generally use parent-child as well, but see a place for master-slave. Parent-Child for generic hierarchical relations between identical things. Master-Slave for generic hierarchical relations where children are dependent on their parents.

I can see why it wouldn't be popular though. We already use parent-child for generic "I'm too lazy to come up with proper names" naming and master-slave are a subset of parent-child. If you're already looking at master-slave as a more descriptive name, might as well spend the little bit of extra mental energy to find industry specific names (e.g. main-worker).
I don't, however, see why political correctness should get in the way of niche cases where it's too much work finding that ideal industry specific name.

What's next? Are we going to have to rename the garden hoe?

It occurs to me, we call cable connectors by male or female, depending on which end. I foresee this may be also controversial one day.

Too many losing their marbles over this. If you cannot control your emotions over as simple as this, don't post and just take a deep breath. Let me see if I can make this any clearer:

"Bait Post-a post on a forum or image board used to deliberately provoke conflict among other posters. Coincides with troll, trolling, or shit-posting"

If you took the bait and then got emotionally unstable-don't blame the site for your lack of level-headedness and because you got slapped with an infraction.
