Re: People Will Talk by truespock...

And doubtless there may be new words to differentiate between people who have inter-species relationships, but words there will be. Grouping everyone under the same umbrella is both infeasible and unnecessary - grouping men and women as simply 'people' for example since they have no desire to be all merged into one grey, faceless group.

Likewise black people prefer to keep their own identity, gay and lesbian people prefer to keep their own identity and so on.

As I've said, no reason to think that words used to differentiate different groups of people will become obsolete.
