New names?

Can you people please tell me what master and slave brake and clutch cylinders are going to be called now? I mean, if I need to call for help I will need the (politically) correct terminology eh?

new names

The new names will be primary (master) and (secondary) slave.
Makes no sense to me but someone thought it was not correct to have a salve cyl.

Primary and Secondary.............Hmmmmm

But won't that make the Secondaries feel inferior............???

But seriously folks, isn't it about time we stopped these wankers from controlling our lives? This is just bull****.

if people (here in america) really cared about their future, they would vote more often, then these clowns wouldn't be in office, wasting our money and time.

i guess if we never say those words anymore, history never happened?

ps. your link didn't work (for me)



(this will probably end up in 'chats and whines')

old school

I will still call them master and slave cyl because I am from the old school and I don't care about politically correct.
This is a compleate sham if you ask me. We have bigger problems in the world then to worry about such trivial things.
It is just like the stewardess they are now flight attendants who really cares.
I heard this all started in California someplace.

LOL Give me a break! Does the term Slave mean you have to be black or something etnic where someone would be offended? So stupid!
