On the program for a meeting my husband and I attended Tuesday night, we were presented as “Bro. & Ms.”…No I didn’t say anything to the editor or chief about this….LOL But, I am a Mrs. I became a Mrs. 33 years ago (October 3rd to be exact…LOL). I never had or will have the desire to be called by something I am not, and that is Ms. MS represents a generation of women who did not want to be known or recognized as a married woman, or an unmarried woman ie Mrs. or Miss. I truly have not studied this at all. I just know what I think I know from years of seeing feminist women use this title.
I’m having Deja Vu here writing this…I don’t know why. Anyway, there was one older woman who had the title of Mrs., so it is a little confusing to me why all the other married women were titled as Ms. Is it because we were younger? (trying to see this from another perspective) Is there something I’m missing here? The editor of the program (secretary?) was a woman, perhaps an evangelical feminist, not really sure but it looks that way to me. I’ve written before how feminism has seeped into all facets of our lives, and this is just one more example. SHOULD I say something, expressing my views and reasons for my viewpoint? Should I let it slide? Is this the perfect chance to voice my opinion about a subject near and dear to my heart? Will I possibly invite criticism by doing so? I can be very brave at times. I started a whole new way of thinking by ladies in several area churches by wearing long dresses all the time to morning services, night services, shopping, and everywhere I went! It didn’t take long for this to catch on for some though, and I am happy I planted those little seeds. But what will this topic do? These are board members/workers/employees for the local church mission association. I just feel I cannot let this go. I have a mission HERE too! I am FEMININE, hear me roar!!!!!!!!! With my heart racing and a sneaky little look in my eye……………………I’ll keep you posted!
