Thats why the Global Language Monitor, an association that tracks the popularity and usage of various words, has compiled a list of the years most politically incorrect words.
One word that is raising the hackles of politically correct types is Menaissance, which refers to the comeback of manliness after the brief metrosexual trend.
Another so-called offensive term is Herstory, which is how feminists take the male element out of HIStory.
And, apparently, the term Flip Chart is offensive to PCers because Flip can be a derogatory slang for Filipinos.
Meanwhile, the phrase black coffee is being criticized for its racist undertones, leading PC people to ask for coffee without milk instead.
Finally, some child care advocates are in a tizzy over the term Momtini, which is a play group where the kids play and the moms drink booze.
