I don't know how many times we have to have the connotation vs. denotation discussion in this forum.
Calling a woman a "female" often has a negative connotation except when a scientific discussion related to sex, as it subtly reduces her value to her literal sex.
I expect Farb to go apeshit about this.
I honestly never knew calling a woman a female was a negative connotation. Where did that come from? How does it reduce her value?
I've never really thought about it or discussed it with someone, so I'm a little stumped. I mean, I'm a male, so maybe I'm missing something.
