Ninety-seven percent of women don’t like being called, “Ma’am,” and I think this is because the sound of that word makes them feel old and ma’ammy. Better to use the word, “Miss,” I think most people think it sounds more youthful than most of the other options.
Everyone seems to hate aging. We do a lot of things to prevent, hide, ignore, retaliate against the presence of getting old. I think it has something to do with wanting to be attractive for other people. So we can gain supposed respect and acceptance from our peers and prospective mates. I am pretty sure that we really just want other people to mate with us. Humans go to hell and back to be more fuckable. This, I know. And getting old means you’re less fuckable, by societal standards and/or primitive instincts. We usually don’t even acknowledge the fact that we’re mammals and we’re animals and we all just want to reproduce and further our species. Because everything that is alive is programmed to live forever through its offspring. Right? At a basic level, that’s undeniable.
And so, that’s why you called women “Miss,” instead of “Ma’am.”
