so it's offensive to be called female?
but if someone that identified with being female was called "bro" would it still be considered offensive? gender bias smh
It is a matter of personal taste.
Most men don't want to wear a dress but most women can get away with wearing pants.
So much for sexual equality .... Anyway, this is side tracking the topic
The point is in this particular situation. Her bf doesn't like to be called rosey.
It is a male thing ... no guy wants to be called Nancy, Susie, or Rosey ...
Most boys were exposed to this cultural bias (in America) while young
Some would be called gay if any effeminate characteristics were displayed
Thus making gay a term of degradation. And, displays of female characteristics
an avenue of embarrassment and ridicule. So, why continue to call him that
and piss him off???
