I Didn’t Go to Evil Medical School to be Called “Mr.”
I was incensed when WSJ writer Joseph Epstein recommended Dr. Jill Biden drop “Doctor” as an honorific, but I could relate.
I don’t mind if people don’t call me doctor, but it bothers me when people refuse to do so. Once I was at a university new student orientation event and the host introduced everyone as “Dr. So-and-so,” until she got to me. She simply said, “That’s Roshaunda.”
Mr. Epstein’s recommendation resurrected this memory and solidified the necessity of my current passion project.
