Dr. Siobhan O'Dwyer, an Australian academic who currently works in the United Kingdom, traveled to Twitter on Friday to complain after calling her Miss instead of Doctor on a Qantas flight.
A British academic who hit Qantas after a flight attendant mistakenly called her Miss instead of Doctor has responded to trolls who have mocked her for having "first world problems".
Dr. Siobhan O'Dwyer, who holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy and is a tenured professor at the University of Exeter Medical School, said the incident would never have happened if she were a man.
In the original publication, Dr. O & # 39; Dwyer said "Hi @Qantas, my name is Dr. O & 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 mistake and call me Miss O & Dwyer.
"I did not spend 8 years in college being called Miss."
The messages went viral last week and Dr. O & D; Dwyer said the public response to his tweet chain had been "pretty hateful", with some tweets of offensive gifs and others accusing Dr. O & # 39; Dwyer to have an "ego".
Some even said that the problem was typical of the "first world problems" and implied that, in the broader context of things, it was not so important.
Dr. O & # 39; Dwyer told his followers: "The vitriol in my diet at this moment is amazing."
She 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".
After the original complaint to Qantas, several people showed their support to Dr.
Dr. Saunders said: "Wow, the answers to this are an unpleasant mixture of anti-intellectualism and sexism. 🙁 & # 39;
Another user, Lisa Lindley, highlighted the heavy administrative burden of a simple name change to Dr.
But, as often happens in social networks, Dr. O & # 39; Dwyer was also the target of trolls to talk.
Dr. O & # 39; Dwyer is also targeted by a number of trolls for publication.
In one, a man publishes a gif of the Scottish character from the hit Hollywood movie Austin Powers saying "Boohoo".
After Dr. O & # 39; Dwyer is defended by another poster, he accuses her of having "1st world problems".
Another sign says that she should lower the tone in the ego, okay? & # 39;
Dr. O & # 39; Dwyer responded to the comments he had received online and said: "Copy so skinny for this tweet". This was not about my ego.
"It was to highlight one of the thousand cases of sexism with which the woman meets every day.
"It's not about the title, it's about the fact that this would not have happened if it were a man."
Her original publication received almost 8,000 likes and 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.
After waves of criticism and online support, Dr. O & Dwyer said he wanted the tweet not to go viral after receiving an "astonishing" amount of hate.
Rejected requests for media comments on the basis that it could provide more opportunities to attack.
"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, stating that she had been mistaken as a man for her title
The users of the social networks were divided on whether the apparent snub of Dr. O & # 39; Dwyer on the flight was a sign of disrespect or a simple error.
His academic colleague Dr. Mel Thomson tweeted his support, writing: "You have all the solidarity in this topic."
Her academic colleague, Dr. Mel Thomson, tweeted her support, but was criticized for calling the stewardesses "cart trolley"
"I'm first to finish high school (let alone get several degrees) in my family … I'll be damned if a tram decides which is the honorific they call me, FFS."
Many people were offended by Dr. Thomson's use of the term "dolly trolley", saying he was disrespectful to women and the profession.
& # 39; Please, do not refer to us as platform cars. We may not have completed a PhD, however, law 2 requires us to maintain quals (sic) that allow us to evacuate an airplane in 90 seconds, keep it alive during the flight, avoid kidnapping, put out fires, etc. ", an airline administrator Twitter account that Belleo tweeted.
"I have always used the right honorific, and I have always taken special care to ensure that I used it when I saw it on a woman's boarding pass, as I was proud to be able to support the woman and her achievements in a world centered on men, "he continued.
& # 39; You just went and get angry with your condescending comment on us & # 39;
Dr. O & # 39; Dwyer (pictured) returned the blow to the & # 39; vitriol & # 39; on his Twitter account after he criticized the airline Qantas for misrepresenting her as & # 39; Miss & # 39; instead of & # 39; Doctor & # 39;
Tim Almond said he had two friends with doctorates who refused to use their correct degree outside professional conferences.
You're asking for problems on a plane. A passenger gets stuck and they will ask you for help, "he tweeted.
Qantas said they agreed with 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.
& # 39; Please, do not refer to us as freight cars & # 39 ;, an airline administrator using the Twitter account Belleo tweeted
The Twitter users were divided over Dr. O & # 39; Dwyer's reasoning, with some accusing her of making a big deal out of nothing and others agreeing that it was a case of sexism.
& # 39; Your tweet is exactly about ego. How many male doctors write tweets to Qantas complaining that they are called Mr & not Dr? If they did, they would copy exactly the same answers as you, "wrote one man.
"Why do not the trolls understand that it's about equality?" Argued another.
Dr. O & # 39; Dwyer turned to social media to say he had been doing so much damage & # 39; for the publication
Academic colleagues, including Marcia Langton of the University of Melbourne, expressed their support for Dr. O & # 39; Dwyer
