comment What's the word for 'busting the myth'?
Depends on the audience but in non sensational writing, myths (which by their definition are not true) need to be supported, to do otherwise looks loaded. jmoreno mentions that some terms are accurate in individual cases, to show differentiation from the group but that has the opposite intent from what the author probably wants because it reinforces the stereotype, by illustrating an exception rather than a rule. The above terms are certainly fine but very careful argument construction would be needed to not fall subject to previously mentioned issues.

comment Is there a word for a non-geek?
Haha I didn't think of that... if you say "common" with a royal drone it could be quite snide too.
