Frankly I don't mind the "ess" suffix all that much. Recently I was referred to as a hostess of the party. I wasn't offended.

I find it odd too that many actresses in Hollywood now refer to themselves as "actors". (Neglecting the historical deference to the masculine, i.e. "everyone should bring "his" pencil to school tomorrow") Doesn't it seem somewhat hypocritical to have a "best actress" award? Why not just a "best actor"? Should we forget gender?
