AP Wants To Do Away With The Term ‘Mistress’

The Associated Press Style Guide announced the proper language to refer to a “woman in a long-term sexual relationship with, and financially supported by a man who is married to someone else” is not “mistress.”

“We now say not to use the archaic and sexist term ‘mistress’ for a woman in a long-term sexual relationship with, and financially supported by, a man who is married to someone else,” AP tweeted. “Instead, use an alternative like companion or lover on first reference. Provide details later.”

How can any term be “sexist and demeaning” to a woman who is purposely destroying another person’s family?
