Everybody who makes their living using language really should take it upon
themselves to become informed about sexist and racist language, and delete
it from their vocabulary.

I've recently seen "rule of thumb" and "dog and pony show" right here on
this list. Look 'em up, and cut 'em out.

It's the recipient who determines whether or not the message is clear -- or
hurtful. When we have been informed that certain words and phrases are
hurtful, we need to stop using them.
