"The whole point is that I was commenting on the government guidelines as posted by Mary. Thought police indeed : )."
- "Thought police" as exampled by the miserable one in the link:
“Each person has a name and it is disrespectful not to call that person by their given name. The use of sexist terminology is a 'bullying' tactic and should not be tolerated”
“You wouldn't catch a male bus driver calling another man 'darling' or 'love' so why should women put up with it?”
“It is a form of assuming these people are your possessions”
“In today's society it is not really appropriate to call a grown woman ‘babe’, ‘honey’, ‘darling’, ‘love’ etc. For one thing, it is a form of diminishing the woman to a younger and therefore more controllable state”
