Thread: Nominations for a new non-offensive PC word to replace the offensive term "Hobbyist"

    Nominations for a new non-offensive PC word to replace the offensive term "Hobbyist"

    Let us come up with a new and non-offensive term for the hobby. I am looking for nominations. It seems that a couple of girls had suggested on Twitter that they do not like this term. It does not seem to be an overwhelming majority but I think anytime anyone is offended by the slightest thing we out to all bend over backwards to accommodate them (rather them tell them to lighten up or put them on notice for having a bad attitude). Is this much ado over nothing? Is this just another case of a minority within a group of people trying to embrace victimhood because it is fashionable? Maybe but I am a weak, apologetic white male and I want to be seen as politically correct and maybe I can brown nose a couple of SPs and get a freebie in the process down the road?
    So please help me with the nomination process. Please list your three favorite terms for what we are as a group.
    As a head start, I just used a thesaurus to look up synonyms for hobby.

    Hobby is a pleasurable pastime (how about pleasure seekers or PS)

    What a wonderful idea, I wanted to do this too, but I am not good enough with the key board.

    Let me be the first to vote.
    I always sucked at all the arts.
    Can't draw/paint, I am tone deaf, was excused from singing class and spent my time in the gym all the time.

    So I finally get to be an artist.
    Artist it is!!!!

    As Hungry just wrote into the other thread that lead to this one, we do this to add diversion to our life. It's exactly that! So we are:

    diversioning



    Cheers,

    I have put a lot of thought into this, and I've got it.

    Not hobbyist.

    Instead "John"

    No, No I think the term John will not do. I think there were some copy-write/trade mark issues with Long John Silvers. The board got a cease and desist order and we had to drop it and go to hobbyist.

    Sounded good at first, but here is what I found on the explanation of leisure or serious leisure, and I assume you are serious about it because anything less would probably be offensive.
    "Serious leisure is the systematic pursuit of a hobbyist."

    How about Tourist

    After all nobody is planning to stay for the long haul including the SP.
    Just touring around can now have a special meaning.

    Why don't you start a poll instead: Do you find the word Hobby disrespectful for the Ladies in this "Hobby"?
