Should I just type the thing I always type again? How much longer can I keep doing this?
It would be one thing if it was called a “Nip Pedophile Cartoon Hornet.” I think that would be a fair enough name for a dangerous insect. But Asia is a locale from whence the murder hornet originates.
Maybe it would be something if it was the African Murder Hornet, because Africans are well-known murderers. But Asians are not known for murder. Maybe if it was the Thai Ladyboy Hornet. Or the Burmese Genocider of Moslems Hornet.

Political correctness has propelled scientists to change the name of Asian murder hornets to prevent potential discrimination.
Known officially as Asian giant hornets and colloquially as Asian murder hornets, scientists with the Entomological Society of America announced on Monday that the new official name will be the “Northern giant hornet,” even though they actually do descend from Asia and were only detected in North America in 2019.
“Amid a rise in hate crimes and discrimination against people of Asian descent, usage of ‘Asian’ in the name of a pest insect can unintentionally bolster anti-Asian sentiment,” the society said in a press release.

The society further added that the negative stigma attached to the hornets’ name could lead to future violence against Asians.
“‘Asian giant hornet’ does not convey unique information about the biology or behavior of the species,” the society’s statement read.
Jessica Ware, president of the society, added that the name is “scientifically accurate.”

“Common names are an important tool for entomologists to communicate with the public about insects and insect science,” said Ware. “Northern giant hornet is both scientifically accurate and easy to understand, and it avoids evoking fear or discrimination.”
As noted by the New York Post, the hornets were first detected in the United States in 2019 and “caused quite the panic after pictures surfaced of their quarter-inch long syringe-like stinger.” Aside from their intimidating presence, the hornets are known to slaughter honeybees, which has led to worry they could cause an environmental imbalance.
This follows another strange action of renaming a thing, which was much funnier.
The World Health Organization (W.H.O.) also announced in June that it will officially rename the monkeypox virus to address concerns about the stigma and racism associated with the word. The change came after 30 scientists signed an open letter arguing for an “urgent need for a non-discriminatory and non-stigmatizing nomenclature for monkeypox virus.”
“In the context of the current global outbreak, continued reference to, and nomenclature of this virus being African is not only inaccurate but is also discriminatory and stigmatizing,” said the missive.
But there are monkeys all over the place. We’ve managed to wipe them out in many places, but half the world is still plagued with monkeys.
It isn’t called “niggerpox.” Maybe it should be. But claiming that “monkeypox” is racist against blacks implies that the WHO thinks black people are monkeys.
What else does it mean to say that “monkey” is a reference to “black people”?
This “rename every biological thing from a place” project ostensibly started with Donald Trump calling coronavirus “China Virus.” That was obviously intended to be “racist” in the sense that he was attacking the Chinese and blaming them for spreading the virus. Which is whatever. I don’t think that is true, and I don’t even support the anti-Chinese views of the Republicans and Democrats and Europeans. But if Donald Trump wants to call it the China Virus, is this not his prerogative?
