  • Reminds me that on Another Forum there been yet another (very civil) discussion on preferred terms, much as on here every so often...

    (Because brain automatically goes urgh at "Ladies (howies) stuff" because it's surely for women not ladies whatever that means, but then this is the Ladies sub-forum so... *shrug *)

    (For interest the general consensus seemed to be that woman was ok, female was only ok as an adjective not a noun, inconclusive on lady, inconclusive on girl - but not ok as commonly used in the workplace, other more "colloquial" terms ok from friends especially female friends. Interestingly none were clearly agreed upon, female as a noun being not ok probably the most agreed)
