    Euro chiefs ban 'Miss' and 'Mrs'

    The European Parliament has banned the terms 'Miss' and 'Mrs' in case they offend female MEPs.

    The politically correct rules also mean a ban on Continental titles, such as Madame and Mademoiselle, Frau and Fraulein and Senora and Senorita.

    Guidance issued in a new 'Gender-Neutral Language' pamphlet instead orders politicians to address female members by their full name only.

    Officials have also ordered that 'sportsmen' be called 'athletes', 'statesmen' be referred to as 'political leaders' and even that 'synthetic' or 'artificial' be used instead of 'man-made'.

    Whatever happened to the "feminist movement" I spent 3 days trying to teach my neighbors wife how to write her initials in the snow while she's pis$ing, what a stupid bastard she is.

    I wonder if that was covered in the 12 language user manual, the EU requires with rubber boot purchases. :confused2:
