"Platform" is just another buzzword

So many au courant terms that I cannot keep up. A partial list:

"Gender" when "sex" is proper. Gender applies to grammar as in masculine and feminine. Sex denotes male and female.

"Functionality" in lieu of "function." Functionality is intrinsic to an item whereas function is what it does.

"Tactical" and "sniper" have become nearly interchangeable. By the way, either in Cabela's or Midway's latest sales flyer a pink gun case is termed "tactical."

"Surgical strike" for accurate bombing. One of my favorites.

Last on this little list is a word that is not heard as often as it was in the 1990's: "hopefully."
