I don’t live in Callac, the pearl of the Argoat. But I live nearby and visit the town two or three times a week to do my shopping and to spend time in the ever-welcoming Café de la Place. Until last week, just about no one outside of central Brittany and the regional cycling fraternity had even heard of Callac. Bikers know it because each July it hosts a cycle race to raise funds for research into cystic fibrosis. Other than that, it is remarkable only for the fact that it has one of the oldest age profiles in France.
‘Mx’ is much harder to pronounce than ‘Ms’. But it’s not a social convenience, it’s a political statement.
