Is it censorship?
According the CBS New York, the NYC Department of Education is considering a list of about 50 words that would be banned from city-wide educational materials used with children (assessments, curricula, etc), for fear that their use could make children feel bad or uncomfortable. "The word dinosaur made the hit list because dinosaurs suggest evolution which creationists might not like, WCBS 880′s Marla Diamond reported. Halloween is targeted because it suggests paganism; a birthday might not be happy to all because it isn’t celebrated by Jehovah’s Witnesses."

If NYC Department of Education thinks that this is the best way to prevent children from learning something they should not, then they must do it as soon as possible. Banning words that have been existing is quite a good idea especially if they know that society has been suffering from missed of words and it's not good anymore. But if a particular word deserves to stay, I think we should all give it a chance!
