It’s a derogatory term to most of the women I have interacted in my life. I have caught lip when I talking to a woman and referring them as “female” instead “woman”. It comes as disrespectful to those women I have interacted with it. Everything is not by book.Go look up the definition of “female.” It is not a derogatory term and only applies to women. To make it a derogatory term means you have a negative viewpoint of women. It’s like Nazis making “Jew” a slanderous term. There’s just way to justify using a term that’s meant to discuss women as perjorative that’s not misogynistic.
I think it shows ignorance if you believe one size fits all. If I was able to understand what DVontel meant and knew he wasn’t being misogynistic, well, I’m pretty much our backgrounds are vastly different from the ones on this board. You can go by book, but I know what I have experienced in actual real life discussions.
