Well there is English and then there is colloquial English. I personally prefer the latter so I don't use -ess. This is actually the first I heard of it.Only seen it used in the context of actor/actress now that I think of it. I don't think the person meant it to be demeaning but I won't be using it as I don't think you need to be classified by sex for a profession/activity etc.
