On referring to women

Tags : None
  • I have been wondering about the way we (as a community) refer to women.
    Why do we so easily and readily call grown women 'girls'?
    Do you think that we should find another more respectful term rather than 'GG'?
    What about CGW (cis-gender woman)? Is this not a better descriptor?
    Am I being too politically correct?

  • I don't do labels and I call women both 'GG' and 'Tg' various things: girls, women, even guys! It depends on what is acceptable to your own culture. I don't have a problem being referred to by any of the above, and often it depends on the situation. For example, a night out or a shopping trip with the girls is normal for me. If we are at a formal event, we would be addressed as 'ladies' so it's all dependant on the social situation.

    Every woman is beautiful, some show it with their faces, others show it with their hearts.
