Trying to change a long used bit of jargon held as acceptable within many industries is expensive, time wasting and ultimately foolish. Especially when it is clear that these presumed offensive terms don't apply to humans. Are we concerned that we may be humanizing mechanical and electrical devices and the slave cylindar on my car brakes will rise up and fail to stop my car?

Colored crayons and colored pencils are now pencils and crayons of color? The cripples that hold up my windows in the walls of my house will be here to for known as physically challenged studs.

Susan don't be silly, just shoot the stupid ones.
