Another Episode Of Political Correctness Run Amok
Apparently, the European Union has more important issues than the global financial crisis to tackle. As a recent article in the Daily Mail discusses, the EU has tackled the critical issue of honorifics that perpetuate nasty sexist views. Therefore, it is henceforth illegal to address someone of the fairer gender as either Miss. or Mrs. (or any of the appropriate terms in the representative languages of Europe) and a bunch of other historically familiar honorific terms. Before long, the only EU authorized term they will permit will be "Citizen" - scary!
