Gearslutz is not a good name for a company. Gearslutz agrees!

Here’s one I somehow managed to miss during last week. Well, there’s only so many hours in the day, isn’t there? The dubiously named Gearslutz are changing their name. What to? We don’t know yet, but Gearslutz founder Julian Standen claims “that the new name will be inclusive, and will stand the test of time”.

Not surprisingly, this has the heads online convinced that political correctness is at work once again. I wish I could work myself into a frenzy over this, but I simply can’t. I’m personally surprised that it took this long for them to work out having a pejorative word for a woman “who is considered to have loose sexual morals or who is sexually promiscuous” in their title is not actually a good idea.

The word “slut” is not even a new word. It’s been around since the 1400s, when it meant a woman who was considered to be dirty or slovenly. The only ones who were engaged in slovenly thought were Gearslutz for thinking this was a good name in the first place.

Let’s just hope that the Z doesn’t appear in the new name. They just make it sound like some rubbish kids toy.
