Seeing as "man" by definition means both "adult male" and "people of
either sex", I think it would be misguided to add "cavewomen" in the
name of gender equality.
In Sweden this debate became rather absurd for a while, with feminist
extremists crying foul whenever there is a remote chance that you
could interpret names, titles etc. this way.
If we really want to address the gender equality in our communication
I would like to ask where Grok's twin sister is hiding :)
