This is a list of questionable or in some cases: negative, pejorative, stereotypical or violent marketing names...
Wow...in best of millennial tunes isn’t your derogatory treating of “negative, pejorative, stereotypical or violent” an actual microaggression and offense to people who enjoy living by those values.

Check your privileges!

p.s. any donkey would take an offense knowing size of what we call donkey dick

p.p.s. shitty names are
KGB (as gear/trick name)
SS (as short for Slingshot)
BOSS (name of Hugo Boss, a passionate nаzi, designer of SS and hitler youth uniforms)
Suicide leash (more frequent referral of suicide increases number of those)
Best (doesn’t represent quality of gear)
Funny, I been using SS as short for Slingshot for ages and never made that connection ... till now :D
My grandfather being lieutenant and my grandma being private met each other in Berlin in 1945. Her whole family - her parents, brothers and sisters were all executed by SS in front of their own house, she could barely recognize their faces shattered by bullets.
They raised us to never forget.

Sad that we are on the same path again. All of the most brutal governments in history chose to "police" language to the point that they redefined existing terms, created new ones, and assigned negative or positive connotations via propaganda to both new and existing terms. All of this was in an effort to silence those that were targeted for extermination. The hightest level of freedom of speech, that only one country on the face of this earth has ever achieved, is in the past behind us. And most disturbingly of all, a morally acceptable solution to the degradation of western society has yet to present itself.

Maybe not dumb, just very confusing. For me at least, or it is that these brands don't interest me as much:

Eleveight: FS WS RS PS
Or
Naish: Slash/Dash


Way too similar. Every time I come across those kites I need to look up or second guess myself which one it actually is.

Might be just me,
But Duotone.
It makes my skin creep.
North is just so strong, meaningful, better.
I agree with Duotone being a horrendous name sounds like a cheap paint company. Whoever came up with that name didn't try very hard. I'm sure the kites are good but name would seriously make me reconsider getting their gear.
