Congressman Tim Bishop, Dis-Misses Women On His Website!


Dear Congressman Bishop,

I’ve come to your website to send you an email. I am asked to fill out a form telling you who I am and giving you my contact information so that you can respond to my concerns. The first form field asks me  for a “prefix.” The available choices, seen in the screenshot below, are Mrs, Miss, Dr. Other and Mr. Why is there no “Ms.” available in this prefix drop down box? Is this 1962? Seriously Tim, as a woman, I find this oversight a small but important detail. According to my very own congressman, I am either married, unmarried or “other?” Yet my husband, or anyone else in possession of male genitalia,  is simply, Mr? Wow & oink. Please add Ms to my list of choices. My tax dollars are paying for this website too.
