EU Bans Use Of Mrs And Miss

by | 17th, March 2009

THE EU wants to ban the use of Miss ad Mrs in case they offend, in accordance with the Gender-Neutral Language docuMENt:

The European Parliament has banned the terms ‘Miss’ and ‘Mrs’ in case they offend female MEPs. The politically correct rules also mean a ban on Continental titles, such as Madame and Mademoiselle, Frau and Fraulein and Senora and Senorita.

Guidance issued in a new ‘Gender-Neutral Language’ pamphlet instead orders politicians to address female members by their full name only.

Of course, as Old Mr Anorak knows, all female politicos are best called Ms.

Everyone else is called “Eu”…
