for the ladies

7 Jan

I was seriously excited about this posting MJ just sent me. Students in the class I TA’ed last semester were forever writing “Congressmen” in their memos, and thought I was a little nuts when I constantly crossed it out and replaced it with “members of Congress.” I realize I may be hyper-sensitive to gender specific titles, but it’s seriously time Congress got its act together.
