Should we change the scientific name for human beings?

This example,
and this one clearly indicate that the meanings of certain words are irrelevent to the hypersensitive. The fact that they sound a certain way is enough to get people, who use them, fired.
Does this mean that scientists will have to stop using the scientific name for humanity, Homo sapiens, for fear that they will lose their jobs?
