You cannot use that term. It is offensive to submariners.
Is it only a matter of time before the term "debugger" (a standard tool in programming) is deemed to be offensive to male homosexuals?
And what about male and female plugs? Are they offensive to trans people?
e-plug and I-plug for outy and inny. Or succuplug and incuplug.
Now see, I couldn't get away with posting this.
By my name at the bottom or a post, some are.
Back in the late eighties, early nineties, I got taken to task for referring to an East German citizen as a DDR Burger.
Personally, for what it's worth, I abhor ALL language censorship. Free speech and free expression is a fundamental right, in my opinion. In my personal experience it takes a certain maturity to see this, just as it takes a certain maturity to realize when something is none of one's business.
All this revisionism is very depressing. If my ancestors did some "bad things", personally I do not feel responsible. I'm sure everyone's ancestors did some "bad things", if you go back far enough.

Oh dear, you left so-an-so's out they will be offended.
Is that a couple of hermaphrodite couplers coupling?
Every time you get to the variable n, you increase its value by one
I can't help thinking that's a bit near the knuckle.
I regret to have to point it out, but this makes no sense. "Every time you get to the variable n"? What does that mean?
If you simply want to increment n, you'd write:
n = n + 1
in Basic. (You could put a Let in there if you like, but in most implementations of Basic these days it's optional.)
Why all the for-next stuff?
You're right. The so-and-so's have been unjustly discriminated against. There are however quite a few "right so-and-so's" who are over-represented.
Now who might they be
