I think there's danger of a rebound, or at least, in time the pendulum will swing the other way.
Like when we gave up Victorian furniture leg covers in favour, eventually, of the miniskirt, and less...
Did I say danger - I will be able to relax and use the colours of the rainbow I was taught at school, without fear of arrest or ridicule by someone with an 'authorised correctness' sheriffs star. Roll on.
Most minority groups, when asked, are fed up with do-gooders presuming to act on their behalf anyway.

Cruising, racing, maintenance facilities. Go take a look, you know you want to.

The local rehoming kennels informed me that on the animal care courses these days it is no longer acceptable to say black or yellow labradors - it should be a dark coloured or a light coloured labrador.
Hmmm - the world has gone barking mad!!!
