Mr. Thorne: I've been out of town so this is my first read of your letter.
First off, thank you very much for taking the time to read the column, think about it, and write a letter to the editor. That, in itself, is a high honor.
Just so you know, I was thinking about the ramifications of being called a ‘girl’ decades before anyone coined the term ‘politically correct.’ As I mentioned in my column, PC has nothing to do with this, nor feminism; I think I was pretty clear that this was more of a commentary on my feelings about shallow compliments and my need (or lack thereof) for them.
As it turned out, I wound up having a long, happy conversation with Java Man. And I certainly didn’t call anyone a nasty name, a nicety that you've managed to avoid.
However, you are most certainly incorrect when he says that no man has a problem with being called a ‘boy.’ I say this from first-hand knowledge, and I repeat it now: don’t ever, ever, ever, EVER call an American black man ‘boy.’ If you’re lucky, they’ll be as nice as I was to Java Man.
As I said, thank you very much for taking the time to comment. I am honored when you read, and especially honored when you take the time to write, no matter what names you choose to call me.
