What is a woman?

January 28, 2007 at 10:11 am 6 comments

Men discuss this question with their buddies, sometimes when they have been drinking, and usually in a whiny voice. Oh, wait! That would be the other question: “What do women want, anyway?” My bad.

Returning to the original question, I have found two answers in just one day! Today, to be exact. I will share them with you.

Merriam-Webster: Etymology: Middle English, from Old English wIfman, from wIf woman, wife + man human being, man
1 a : an adult female person b : a woman belonging to a particular category (as by birth, residence, membership, or occupation) — usually used in combination <councilwoman>

Japanese Health Minister Hakuo Yanagisawa: birth-giving machines (and) devices

Apparently Japanese women have not taken kindly to his definition. Right now he may be asking himself, “What do women want, anyway?”

    “Child-bearing machines” indeed. Any enlightened man refers to them as “child-bearing units.” “Machines” is so de-humanizing.

    Hi Elzbth!
    I have seen you at different places in space … got curious … and here I am 🙂
    A woman is a FE-male, and FE is the chemical mark for Iron(y), that must mean ??? The difference is that we are strong as iron, have a strange kind of humor …… 😀

    Hi, Anna-Lys. I’m glad you stopped by. You are obviously an articulate and intelligent person, as are all Dr. Pepper fans.
