The Toronto Regional Real Estate Board (TRREB) is removing the term “master” bedroom from all of its databases and listing services and replacing it with the politically correct phrase “primary” bedroom. According to a TRREB news release, the change was suggested by the organization’s Diversity and Inclusion Task Force (DITV) to better align it with Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) practices. The release promised that the change “will also address the negative connotations surrounding ‘master’ bedroom, which many Members, others in the industry, and the public at large associate with terminology rooted in slavery and/or sexism. We also heard some of your concerns about the offensive undertones associated with this term. We know that words matter, and this is a step forward in rethinking outdated terms and modernizing the language used in the real estate industry.” Note to the TRREB and wokesters everywhere: Banning (or bastardizing) language is not progressive; it is regressive…a step backward.
