people are more likely to say sir or madam as a sign of respect though, which arent really titles technically (although theyre still gendered :/). the only time i can think of people using mr and mrs is for teachers in school
isn’t it weird that it’d be like “yes, sir” but then “yes, miss”???? and even if they were married we’d still say “miss” lmao it doesn’t make sense
there’s gotta be something else we could use instead. i’d be down for dropping the whole thing but ppl are gonna want respect-showing things probably
Titles were seen as a form of respect. It was also a way to tell class (when class was important). You would address someone from their title when you don’t know them, to inform them that they respect them. What is Mx?
but then that’s so outdated i can’t think of a single time anyone’s ever done that???
Mx is a gender neutral title, it’s meant to be recognised in the UK but some places are still iffy abt it
I asked David and he responded that it was grammatical. That miss is singular and mrs. is plural- and since the married person is no longer single (?) you change to mrs. Idk he explained it better I’m not doing a good job.
ah no i get it!! but like. what i want to know is why “Mr”s stay the same the whole time. they can be married too so like???? why do those rules suddenly not apply to Mr
in a healthy, close relationship of any kind, when something upsets you, you need to bring it up. as soon as possible, even. cultivate an environment in which you both can talk about things that upset you, with the utmost attention to everyone’s feelings. it’s a really simple thing to do but it’s a thing i’ve been working on for a while and i’m getting actual nice things happening as a result
