..Mademoiselle from armatiers, is no more and reduced to tears

Feminist Asshat Culture

Adieu, ‘Mademoiselle’
France bans equivalent of ‘miss’ in government documents


Prior to the ban, women were referred to as either as madame (the English equivalent of Mrs.) or mademoiselle (the equivalent of Miss), depending on their marital status. Men are simply referred to as monsieur (Mr.).

The victory is one for the French feminists who earlier this year were able to eliminate the marital distinction from the town of Cesson-Sevigne. [Full]

The French have a confusing way of protecting their culture, wot wot?

Reckon, 'em Frenchies could combine Madame an' Mademoiselle into "Mad."
