The word "slave" is fine for computer science because a) none tries to make a real person slave and b) historical reasons and backwards compability. You may be against b), but this is your problem.

What is wrong here, is that some minor group striking for political correctness tries to impose its behavior in technical field. It's a shame that sometimes such group wins (for example, as in the Python case).
