I would say that say that I have seen the term "relic" being used as a
'weaponized' word to imply that the old thing WAS there intentionally as
a repressive measure. I am not saying that this usage was intended to be
used that way, but just as the old wording was taken as offensive to
some due to implication, I can see that message as offensive to others
due to implication, all because some people are easy to offend.
