Words That Should Be Retired

Not because you're tired of hearing them, but because they have no functional use anymore.

To start: "Coed."

WTF's a "coed" today? Oh, it's a female student... probably in a porno.

But I still see the New York Times, Yahoo News, and genuine on the street human beings use it as if it has serious currency today, in english-centric  parts of the world.

My Brain is the Wakaba and Shiori Funtime Hour. With limited commercial interruption.

Re: Words That Should Be Retired

And along with coed can go poetess and aviatrix.  They're nice words, but we don't need them anymore, and they've started to sound a little patronizing.  Happily, I think they're dying already -- along with some early tech buzzwords like "information superhighway" that have outlived their usefulness.
