"I'm No Anchor Baby, I'm...A Future Doctor"

   tl:dr: I'm an anchor baby who is a future doctor.
   This neo- PC nonsense about terminology just has to stop. 'Anchor baby' is not insulting qua terminology. It's an apt descriptive term. Pretending that it's an insulting term in an attempt to force people to stop talking about the phenomenon is a particularly low form of sophistry. Actually having a baby in the U.S. for the purpose of establishing a toehold is, I'm told, not that common. See...that (if true) is the relevant point. So that's what should be said. Not every battle is a terminological battle.
