Twitter user, @AyoSekai tweeted the most elitist statement known to man.
“It is time to normalize the doctorate. It is not Ms. It’s Dr. It’s not Mrs, Sir, or Ma’am, it’s Dr. Not only at conferences, seminars, or academic spaces. It’s at the grocery store, the hospital, the church, the airport, children’s schools. Its Doctor! #phdchat”
It’s like, yes, I know what you’re trying to say.
You worked hard for that degree. It’d be nice if people respected that hard work.
But you do see how this comes off as a tad narcissistic and overbearing, right?? It’s why we all make fun of DOCTOR Jill Biden all the time.
People don’t like being told what to say by self-appointed nobles!
this is the kind of academic drivel I despise. i’m a member of “the club”, but honestly — so what? i did my thing for me and because i love what i do. i didn’t do it so others could bow down to me. Ms. Sekai — i hope i’m doing that super-wrong — is a hoity-toity. https://t.co/bRtCsT6A6Z
