I hate being asked "Is it Miss or Mrs?". I always answer "Ms" with a grudge. Why is that? Because, when you're a man, you're just a "Mr". You're not constantly reminded of whether you're married or not, because it doesn't matter. You're a man, and that's the end of it.
Women, on the other hand, are defined by marriage, through this little, but significant distinction. They are reminded of it constantly, by this one little, annoying question that just won't go away. "Is it Miss or Mrs?". I think it's offensive to be asked this question, just as I hate having to choose between putting my tick next to the Male or Female box on the form (as though I had a choice).
All I really want to be, is a person.
