The name were not chosen to be disrespectful to anyone in any way. Those who take offense should not be so thin-skinned as to think it is intended to be harmful or disrespectful to any creed, color, religion, sex or sexual orientation. It is a name, that is all.
The names are entrenched in the community and should not be changed. I think we, as a society, have placed too much emphasis on being sure we are politically correct so as to not offend anyone. Get a grip!
Just like the little old lady from Richland that has decided due to her beliefs and values that she and her shop will not provide flower service to a gay wedding. Get over yourself and go buy flowers elsewhere. Don't become a martyr for your beliefs and sue her or force her to follow your belief. Get over it!
