Jet Blue Winglet Bender at Boston Logan

Why is it that when two cars bump into each other it's a fender bender but if two aircraft do it it's always a "collision"?

Maybe they can have parking sensors, just turn up the wick compared to car ones?

Given that reports say one aircraft was parked, and being pedantic, it was an allision not a collision.
