Minister's son

Yes, okay, I can grant that this term was invented here. But why? Isn't it just different wording for what has long been known as a PK, or Preacher's kid? Perhaps I should invent the term Missionary's Son, despite the term MK or Missionary's kid already being in long use? Philip J. Rayment 09:00, 16 February 2008 (EST)

Not familiar with "preacher's kid," and that sounds slightly derogatory. We wouldn't say "Kid of Man" instead of "Son of Man," would we? The Minister's son is to describe an insight that liberals deny.--Aschlafly 09:03, 16 February 2008 (EST)
maybe we could borrow from Dusty Springfield and have "Son of a Preacher Man" ;-) Sawneybeane 09:05, 16 February 2008 (EST)
PK is usually used as a derogatory term, while Minister's son is being used on CP as a complimentary description. 10px Fox (talk|contribs) 09:10, 16 February 2008 (EST)
No, although I can understand why Andy though so, PK is not a derogatory term at all. Well, it may be used that way by some, but it is (relatively) commonly used by PKs (and MKs) themselves. Just have a look at the Google hits for "PK MK preacher kid missionary". Admittedly it is not used to refer to people who have made significant accomplishments, but apart from that, and that it is not limited to males, it means essentially the same thing. Philip J. Rayment 09:21, 16 February 2008 (EST)
Also, you can purchase a range of PK and MK clothing and other items! [1][2] Andy, you're going to have to list this under "something I've learnt today"!! :-) Philip J. Rayment 09:27, 16 February 2008 (EST)
OK, the uses on the links you cite are not derogatory, but they are not complimentary either. Like the word "kid" itself, it is disfavored in an educational context like ours here.--Aschlafly 10:05, 16 February 2008 (EST)
