So did I. For one thing, we talk. Not that this is necessarily any advantage...

Doesn't bother me as much as "chick." There are worse names.

We can go in circles like this forever, but that won't make the word discussed any less rude and disrespectful.

you're right. mute people are not humans, humans are not animals, and the words "Male" and "female" are rude.

No, it doesn't bother me. I do the exact same thing with "males", so. . . .

In fact, I can get quite sexist on the other end of the spectrum.

Sex is what we are, like it or not, and each other operates differently, and certainly not all "bad".
