I agree that there's no solid reason why we shouldn't consider a change in terminology. Labels change all the time including whether they're positive or negative. Negro used to be the accepted term but now its considered rather offensive. I don't hear anyone saying, oh they've just got baggage, we don't need a new word. There are A LOT of people who dislike the word secondary and for good reason. Sometimes, it can accurately describe a relationship but often it fails to do so. I see no reason why we can't continue to work through our insecurities AND find a more likeable term. If it weren't a big deal, there wouldn't be things like the secondaries bill of rights.
