A Dave Chapelle reference from a female, let alone a female fighter? Rousey just went from attractive to minor Deity in my book

Saying "female" in a casual conversation makes one sound like a 20-something jackass. If you aren't Snoop Dog, stick with 'woman'.

He (and many people in California) also says 'females' instead of 'women' when 'bitches' is too disrespectful. You stupid fuck.

...where did I say it was slang? I don't have an issue with 'female', I just think it sounds stupid when people use it in place of chick/woman/girl i.e. I'm trying to go out and talk to some females

I'd say popular opinion on this thread says everything you've said so far is stupid, so don't concern yourself too much with the word "female"

  • [-]

Popular opinion (from people who struggle to use punctuation or capitalization) also says that comments like "your a dumb fuck" should be upvoted en masse.

I think I'm with you. "Female" sounds like you're talking about a dog or something. No one ever says "male [insert occupation]." "Female" sounds a bit dehumanizing.

  1. Male stripper
  2. Male nurse
  3. Male receptionist/secretary

and, of course

  1. Mailman ^(i'm sorry, i'm sorry, i had to, i'm sorry)

Haha, I lol'd.

Gotta say though, all those "male" jobs are just pointing it out because they're not seen as "manly." Which I think is pretty shitty. Men should be able to be nurses, strippers, and receptionists without having to add the "male" qualifier. There's nothing wrong with any of those professions.

In turn one could say that we refer to women in certain jobs as "female (occupation)" because those jobs are not seen as feminine. For example when we talk about female fighters.

I have yet to hear anyone use the sex designation for gender neutral jobs. (i.e. female chemist or female banker)

Also, when people do specify the sex of the individual preforming the job, i don't think they are suggesting anything is wrong with it. Just that it is not what they expected / believed to be normal. As people get used to it female/male will drop off naturally and we will just say "fighter" or "nurse".

I really don't think its dehumanizing, or even worth talking about. This is not a popular opinion but I'll say it again: If the biggest thing women have to worry about is being referred to as "females" in their chosen profession then we're doing pretty fuckin well on the sexism front.

Also, I don't get why you're being so hostile about this. I was just pointing out that some word choices can have some negative connotations. There's no reason to get all angry about it.

Attacking people's right to free speech has negative connotations and I will fight you to the death over it. I don't know what kind of fascistic shithole you come from, but we take our freedoms seriously in this country. The terrorists will never win.

Woah woah, calm down. No one's attacking free speech. They're just asking if you could maybe think about your word choices a little more carefully. It's a request, not an order.

Also, in case you forgot, free speech goes both ways. Sure, you can go around calling women "females" (although I'm not sure why you want to), but I also get to tell you that I think it's a poor choice of words and that it makes you sound like an asshole.

Now, I know that this is an MMA subreddit, and that you have lots of steroids coursing through your veins right now, but let's try to keep the 'roid rage to a minimum, okay?

Yes, you did. You attacked my right to free speech. Over my dead body, you fucking cunt.

Are you willing to lay your life on the line for your cause? Because I am. Our freedoms were not won easily, and they will be protected vigilantly and with vigor at every step.

I fucking dare you to come at me and take my freedoms from me, you shitty little piece of shit.

That's funny, because you criticized the punctuation and grammar from the users voting you down. If you are arguing that this is just a casual, relaxed internet environment for conversation, then nit-picking capitalization and spelling is pretty lame.

I was using that as an example of the quality of their responses (which range from 'you are fucking stupid' to 'fucking white knights') which is relevant when somebody tells me that popular opinion matters.
