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 :)
