A current CAF thread reads: "Can two females …?.
Is there any need for so much BIOLOGICAL language; eg “pregnant female/woman”? Why not “expectant mother”?
Instead of female/females and male/males, what

Author/authress. actor/actress, mediator/mediatrix: what`s wrong with the feminine versions?
Are we referring to ourselves and others as “things”, rather than as human beings? i can`t help feeling that a lot of the lack of respect between the sexes is due to these words: what lady likes being called a “female”?
Another grouch: why are ladies so often referred to by their surnames only? Mrs, Miss and Ms are OK and civilized. We need to have a lot more respect for Womanhood.
We ought to recapture the Age of Chivalry, and to hell with radical feminism and any other evil that
