Things to Avoid

Words and phrases to avoid

Harmful, toxic, or questionable language, such as blacklist, swarthy, or dame.

Alienating words or phrases, especially those that apply to marginalized groups. E.g. “Driving blind.”

Sports analogies. They can be alienating, especially if used in excess.
