    Miss Please and Dont Ma'am Me!!

    Like I said in a comment I prefer Miss. Ms implies that my marital status is a cause of sensitivity. Mrs = Old. And Ma'am really gets up my nostrils - its a pet peeve thing but I know its derived from madam and that makes me think of someone who runs a brothel (without the e lol...

    Society's Double Standard (Ms is ok for now)

    Men in this culture do not need to disclouse marital status. Women tend to change their last name and explain their marital status through their title.  I kept my last name when I got married and I kept my last name. I always used the title Ms.(soon to be Dr). To me it...
