‘Actress’ is a perfectly good word – a rant

Lindybeige’s excellent rant about the word actress. I agree with every word. Calling an actress an actor is insulting women, the acting profession and actresses! If you haven’t ever checked out this bloke I suggest you give it a go. He knows his stuff about language and weapons and historical re-enactment and all sorts of stuff (including dancing, where I draw the line). While nobody is right about everything Lindy’s record is very good indeed.
