@InternetEh Local politics has been fighting a really stupid version of this linguistic problem. We have a neighborhood named Butchertown from when the era when that was a small business. The neighborhood has a massive blight from a huge industrial pig slaughterhouse. People all the time claim you can’t kick the last “butcher” out of Butchertown. Uh, that’s not how names work? That plant isn’t a butcher shop?
