Au revoir, Mademoiselle!

Just read that back in February, the French government officially bid 'adieu' to the term 'mademoiselle.'  Hmmm... How very modern of them?

 

Thoughts?

    pluto,

     

    I really like and use the term!  Obviously, I am "Old Fashioned", but I never had a lady act like I "Insulted' her with the term!

      Yes, I love the term too.  Love to say it.  Love to read it.  Love to spell it.  Sigh.
