A politician shared an air experience of his own in response to an academic who complained about being called "miss" by a stewardess.

Peter Phelps, a member of the Liberal Party Legislative Council of New South Wales since 2011, led the PhD Phiophon O & # 39; Dwyer Philosophy in a Twitter post on Wednesday.

"My God, Qantas just received" Welcome abroad, Mr. Phelps "even though my boarding pass clearly indicates that it is" Doctor Phelps, "wrote Dr. Phelps, who holds a Ph.D. in Australian History.

"So I just said: 'Thank you.' … because I'm not a massive academic feminist prat whose time is spent looking for patriarchal insults where there are none."

Dr. Phelps followed the message with an additional comment that the experience "destroys his ex post facto justification that" it would never happen to a man. "

Dr. O & # 39; Dwyer sparked controversy with a viral tweet last week in which he criticized Qantas for not calling her & # 39; doctor & # 39; during your flight.

The lecturer accused the airline of "everyday sexism" and complained that he received a hate mail for his publication on Twitter about the incident.

This was not about my ego. It was to highlight one of the thousand cases of sexism that women face on a daily basis, "he wrote to his 3,300 followers.

"It's not about the title, it's about the fact that this would not have happened if it were a man.

"The vitriol in my diet right now is amazing."

Dr. O & # 39; Dwyer sparked controversy with a viral tweet last week in which he criticized Qantas for not calling her & # 39; doctor & # 39; during your flight.

Dr. O & # 39; Dwyer defended her message, saying that it was not about ego, but "it highlighted one of the thousand examples of sexism that women encounter every day".

His original tweet accused a stewardess of Qantas of deliberately calling her "Miss" after assuming that the "Doctor" on her boarding pass was a typo.

Hi, Qantas, my name is Dr. O & # 39; Dwyer. My ticket says Dr. O & # 39; Dwyer. Do not look at my ticket, look at me, look at my ticket, decide it's a typo, and call me Miss O & # 39; Dwyer, "he wrote.

"I did not spend 8 years in college to be called Miss."

Its publication sparked a debate over whether Dr. O & Dwyer, who works as a professor of Aging and Family Care in the UK, or the stewardess was wrong.

"I did not spend 8 years in college to be called a young lady," reasoned Dr. O & # 39; Dwyer (left). In July, she shared a boarding pass labeled Mr (right), claiming she had been mistaken as a man for her title.

In July she shared a picture of a boarding pass reading "Mr Siobhan O & Dwyer", alleging that she had been mistaken for a man for her "medical" title.

After Dr. O & Dwyer's tweet, Qantas said that they supported the professionalism of his cabin crew.

"We are extremely proud of our cabin crew that respectfully serves our customers day after day and plays a vital safety role," a Qantas spokesman told Daily Mail Australia.

Dr. O & Dwyer told Daily Mail Australia that he did not want to talk about the incident and the reaction to it.

"I reject all requests from the media because the online response has already been so scathing and more coverage will only incite more hatred," he said.
