LMAO. My stepmom hates to be called that, and she always tried to be the Brady Bunch, and one day she told us, ala Carol Brady, "the only steps in this house are the ones leading up to your bedrooms!" Funny thing is, we didn't have steps, it was a one-level house
Back to the OP... I call my stepsisters and stepbrother my actual sisters and brother, unless I am speaking to someone who doesn't know them and would be confused. Two of my stepsisters (one on each side) are half black and there have been times I have gotten a funny look when I've introduced them as my sisters
I don't find it offensive. I also call my stepdad just that to others, and I call him by his first name to him, because my real father died when I was 16 and I still have a hard time calling my stepdad Dad. But for some reason, I have no problem calling my FIL Dad
Maybe because he didn't know my real father? I don't know, I'm just weird.
