To bring this up again, I would say, "the word 'URSS'" rather than "the 'URSS' word". "The [letter] word" is a formula for euphemizing* swear words.france-eesti wrote:(I just remember my mother pronouncing the "URSS" word (in French) in a funny way)

Using "female" as a noun for humans is rather common in certain registers, but it often sounds dehumanizing. I'd say, use an adjective, like I did in my correction, or go with "woman" and/or "girl".Osias wrote:I have no idea what's the difference is.
The next human being isn't sure about being a female.
This next bit is directed at Osias, but informed by tiuwiu's response. "Isn't sure about being a female" to me means "isn't sure that being female is a good idea". But tiuwiu's answer would make more sense if you'd said "isn't sure that they are female". What did you mean?tiuwiu wrote:Osias wrote:The next human being isn't sure about being a female.
No, I'm absolutely sure I'm female. ... At least I wore a pink scarf today

The person after me has a potted plant they're struggling to keep alive.
