    Associated Press chides “archaic and sexist term” “mistress”, announces it will now use “lover” or “companion”

    Thank goodness for people of the internet who were more than happy to point the ridiculousness of the style change

    The war on language rages on. And then attempt to normalize behaviors and relationships that destroy the family unit gets an assist from the AP.

    The Associate Press, responsible for wire stories appearing in local press nationwide, announced they’d no longer use the term “mistress” and instead will use “lover” or “companion.” Because either of those is any better?

    “Lover” and “companion” both gloss over the fact that the relationship is extramarital and make it sound super rosy and perfectly appropriate when in fact, it is not. Mistresses, side pieces, concubines, all fitting. And this is not France. Mmmkay?

    But thank goodness for people of the internet who were more than happy to point the ridiculousness of the style change:

    Our traditional Miss and Mrs. not only let a man know which women were available, but also helped him respect the integrity of someone else’s family.
