How would you describe the 'DB-9, DB-15, DB-25' connectors?

If we were to eliminate masculine and feminine descriptions ...
how would you describe the action of connecting them? Hm.m.m.m

Well, some people call them "mainboards."

What about daughterboards?

And, is motherboard insulting? Is it bad? Why don't I see that?

And to answer John Posada, yep...instead of "motherboard;" henceforth, I
will use personboard, or just bored....
