Why You Shouldn’t Refer to Women As “Females”

I know a guy who is always referring to women as “females.” And for some reason it always just made me feel uneasy. He doesn’t do it in a negative way and it’s not a pejorative for him. But it still sounds wrong to me. And I would never do it. So I did a simple search about referring to women as “females,” and I came up with a few things. Apparently, I’m not the only one who isn’t thrilled with it. There is a list of reasons why you shouldn’t do it.

Here’s more. They also mention that you never hear women referring to one another as “females.”

“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”
