Esteemed Colleagues... [05 Sep 2005|11:30pm]
As one who is generally disdainful of the modern "politically correct" environment (can't we come up with a better term than that?) I was quite dismayed to hear that the term "lady" is now considered to be an officially derogatory term. According to "studies" carried out in the vaunted relm of Academia, the word is said to be associated with, shall we say, "unvirtuous" women.

I submit that this is poppycock. Furthermore, I submit that the elimination of the term "lady" from our language would be a dire strait indeed.
