One of my students called me "hon" today.
He's an older guy (I've got half a class full of TAA students, as I've said) and I'm finding it hard to be really upset about it, and I'm certainly not going to give him a hard time over it, given that I don't actually think he meant any harm by it -- I was helping him sort his TAA paperwork out, and he just said, "Thanks, hon," on his way out, but, well.
Really. Is that something that would get said to a male professor? Ever?
Or anything equivalent?
I'm thinking not.
