Veary well put Michael.T learn somthing new every day. If Im not mistaken the word Warior is also genderless as well Im not sure the full meaning on the histroy of that word but Im sure one of you will look it upMichaelT said:Ah, we have arrived at it at last. Took us four pages to decry English as a sexist language that doesn't have a separate word for a female fighter. ;DThe word "fighter" is used in the same manner as the word "human". In that sense it is genderless and can be applied to a person of either sex.In case someone feels wronged by the fact that words such as "human" or "woman" have "man" in them, here is a wee history lesson: In Old English the word "man" was used to identify a human being of no particular gender. Hence "mankind" and "humanity". To differentiate between males and females, people used to say "he-man" and "she-man".
