Can we give up the term postmodernism?

It wasn't a particularly useful term to begin with, but at least in the 80s and 90s there were still people who self identified with this term. But at this point, anytime someone uses the term postmodernism all I know is that they are trying to smear/attack some philosophical group. And if a term is only used as a smear term, and is basically only used as a strawman, can we just agree to drop it?
