Contessa

May 14, 2008

When booking something online the other day, I was asked to select my title from the above list. And what a fabulous selection it contains. (And how curiously British.) There are a few oddities in it – doctors can have either male or female partners, but vicars have to have female ones – so I guess lesbian priests are OK, but straight female ones or gay male ones aren’t. A professor can’t have a male partner unless that partner is a doctor, while military folk have to stay resolutely single.

After careful study of the list, I choose ‘Contessa’, naturally.

    Well of course!

    I was actually talking to the British Pro-Consul here in Sydney, he was saying that if a civil-partnershipped gay guy is made a life peer (and thus, becomes a “Lord”), his partner is entitled to be an “Honourable”. How quirky! 🙂

    Love it! If you see the Pro-Consul again, ask him what civil partners of other kinds of honours are called.
