HEH: “When I first started teaching at Stanford, someone remarked to me that he had never met a physicist who used ‘Dr.,’ and never met a Ph.D. from the Education school who did not. This has held true in my experience for decades now.”

Plus, from Ann Althouse: “I’ve elided some of the text, but there’s nothing in it that goes after women in particular. It’s not misogynistic at all. Epstein is right to advise non-physicians to eschew the ‘Dr.’ honorific. He could be criticized for not showing any concern for how women in particular have used this mode of demanding respect and dignity. But in a way, he’s showing respect by talking to Jill Biden the way he’d talk to a man: It’s ridiculous! Cut the crap!”
