As Barbara Ehrenreich remarked,
I like being called Ms. I don’t want people saying “man” when they mean me, too. I’m willing to make an issue of these things. But I know that even when all women are Ms., we’ll still get sixty-five cents for every dollar earned by a man. Minorities by any other name—people of color, or whatever—will still bear a huge burden of poverty, discrimination and racial harassment. Verbal uplift is not the revolution.
