What's In a Name — Part IV

Nowhere in the Constitution of the United States are found the words Congressman or Congresswoman. Yet publications continue to blindly follow some style manual and discriminate by gender. Much preferred by The Anarchist are the titles Member of Congress and Congressional Representative, like it says in the Constitution (not the AP Style Manual!).
