“Miss.” That’s what a Qantas employee called passenger Siobhan O’Dwyer. Frankly, I’m appalled and think they should have called her Ms.
But, O’Dwyer thinks the airline employee should have called her “Doctor.” She tweeted:
Hey @Qantas, my name is Dr O’Dwyer. My ticket says Dr O’Dwyer. Do not look at my ticket, look at me, look back at my ticket, decide it’s a typo, and call me Miss O’Dwyer. I did not spend 8 years at university to be called Miss.

Not everyone was on her side. She also jumped to a whole lot of conclusions, especially the part where she determined that the employee decided the “Dr” was a typo. She has no clue why the employee made that decision. My guess is that the employee calls all females Miss and all males Mr.
Of course, leap to the assumption that an airline employee is coming to all sorts of conclusions about you and disrespecting you — not that they’re, oh, busy, simply glanced at your last name, saw you’re female, and called you “Miss.” #victimfeminism https://t.co/Xy6KT1Yq2y
