6 Reasons You Should Stop Referring To Women As "Females" Right Now

Simply put, it's rude and it's weird.

1. Because the words "female" and "woman" mean different things.

2. Because reducing a woman to her reproductive abilities is dehumanizing and exclusionary.

3. Because nobody casually refers to men as "males."

4. Because it is most often used to imply inferiority or contempt.

5. Because it's grammatically weird.

6. And most importantly, because the word you're looking for already exists.
