We already know that kids can’t play ‘cowboys and Indians’ anymore because some people think the SECOND word isn’t socially acceptable anymore… apparently.
Did you ever expect to see the day that the FIRST one wouldn’t be, either?
CBS seems to have a problem.
They’re tripping over themselves not to use the most practical and obvious word.
Can you guess which word?

They’re turning themselves into knots not to refer to those guys on horses, wearing hats and directing cattle as ‘cowboys’.
It was Twitter, after all…
So they got the all the scorn they deserved.

Out of touch, much?
how can you be so ridiculously out of touch & claim to be journalists?! "People on horseback"? They're cowboys!

A fan of these cowboys speaks her mind:
LOL! Hey City Slickers, the word is COWBOYS….or Hot Dudes…..or even Heroes.
— Bonnie from Houston (@1prophetess) September 2, 2017
I don’t know about hot or not, but Heroes fits nicely.
Texans don’t put on airs.
Can't you just say "cowboys"?!
There's no gender ambiguity here, Real Texans don't get ruffled over such sillyness! #texasstrong

They don’t NEED to put on airs. Because they’re #TexasStrong
And this one’s probably the best of them all:
The Dallas People on Horseback Stadium…you are journalists. Edward R. Murrow not happy…

Watching them fumble over giving the football scores on CBS should be interesting.
Don’t you think?
Or maybe they can all just stop being candy-asses and just tell it like it is.
As Churchill once said, ‘it is sheer laziness not compressing thought into a reasonable space’.
But this may be closer to the truth:
Yeah, that’s more like it.
If they ever want to remedy that issue, they should start with this book:
