Why not call it LibreOffice Vanilla?

I might be hypersensative right now, due to the riots in the United
States, but I suspect every HR department seeking to reduce "hostile
work environment" lawsuits would flat out bar the use of any product
that contained the word "vanilla" in it, due to both its racial, and
sexual connotations.


As a U.S. citizen I find this puzzling... I've never heard the term vanilla to ever be remotely 
controversial. "Vanilla" is a term most often used to describe something as "boring", which may 
provoke sexual connotations as much as the word "fun" or "weird" does.

If anything, I find using "vanilla" as a descriptor for blandness objectionable as it diminishes 
vanilla; it is a rich, distinct flavor!
