Euphemism Propagator

Why stop at undocumented immigrants? How about unsanctioned executioner, intimacy entrepreneur, unregulated pharmaceutical distributor, freelance fireman, extra-consensual lover, non-transactional consumer, volunteer window inspector, non-traditional mover, oathtaking taleteller, non-contracted private investigator, and force prone political expressionist?

Can you identify these members of society? Care to add some of your own?

"Serial Monogamy" instead of promiscuity. "Partner" instead of lover. "Fetus" instead of baby. "Gay" instead of homosexual. "Tolerant" instead of ungrounded.

They do the same thing with stem cell research - change the lingo.

He who controls the terminology frames the debate, and often wins it.
