>>Is this a result of feminist pressure?

When I read the original posting, I stumbled over
"women"! I vote "female" to be used in these instances.
God only knows who thought that a change like that would
be an improvement! Sure hope it wasn't the result of
feminist pressure...

BTW, remember the (short) thread on quotes vs punctuation?
I'm with the British- put the punctuation AFTER the quotes!
Above, I didn't stumble over "women!", I stumbled over
"women", like I said! :)
