Why “Woman” Became an Adjective

Did it ever strike you as odd that we increasingly read about “women engineers” or “women doctors” instead of female doctors and engineers? Clearly, “woman” is a noun whereas “female” is an adjective. Consequently, the correct phrase would be “female doctor”. I used to think that this is simply a consequence of people having a shoddy command of English, thanks to incompetent teachers. The less charitable interpretation is that this is a deliberate attempt of neo-Marxists of destroying common usage patterns. There is some neo-Marxist influence, but it is a bit different than I thought.

Interestingly, a term like “woman doctor” should be interpreted much differently. Language follows certain patters. For instance, the word ophthalmologist is quite difficult. Thus, people frequently speak of an “eye doctor” instead, i.e. a doctor who specializes on eyes. A “woman doctor”, using the same pattern, should therefore not be a female doctor but a doctor who specializes on women, i.e. a gynecologist. In fact, I can imagine such ambiguous language use to be quite confusing to people not very familiar with the English language. For ESL learners this surely cannot be easy.

Quite randomly, however, I came across a good explanation for the usage of “woman X” where X is a high-status activity or profession. We hear a lot of “women doctors” but hardly anything of “women fraudsters”, for instance. If women are entangled in fraud, the mainstream press drops all reference to nouns and adjectives hinting at femaleness. As an example, you may at best read about the “biotechnology entrepreneur Elizabeth Holmes”, and her fraudulent activities are hidden in a subordinate clause. This gives you a hint already: this language use is intended to manipulate you. The aforementioned language manipulation is based on the assumption that “female” sounds weak whereas “woman” sounds strong. This is not far-fetched. You can easily bark out the word “woman” but not “female”. Think of the sentence, “Woman, make me a sammich!” Clearly, “woman” is a very powerful way of addressing a female member of the human race. In this context, feminist opinion seems to be that “woman” is some kind of insult, however. Nonetheless, the belief is that “woman doctor” sounds more powerful than “female doctor”, which is why you increasingly hear the former.

You may now ask yourself how I managed to unearth such esoteric information. It literally fell into my lap! I was sent a guide on “sensitive” language use, which explained that it should be “woman engineer” and not “female engineer”. The latter usage was even described as “insensitive” as it would enforce traditional stereotypes. Here you have it: a bunch of women and leftist faggots imagine that “woman” sounds more powerful than “female”, so they attempt to bully society to wreck our language. Even the woke Oxford English Dictionary on my computer does not know “woman” as an adjective.

  1. Here’s Dr Dana Brems. She’s reasonably attractive for being in her 30s. I’m quite puzzle why she would specialize in Podiatric Medicine. I find emergency medicine more fascinating. Other specialties like otolaryngologist would have been much better than being a foot doctor.

    1. This woman surely caters to a fetish audience. If you look around, the amount of foot fetish content is absolutely baffling. This must be one of the most popular fetishes around, and “FootDocDana” is making a nice side-income this way. If she hung up her coat and went full-time on OnlyFans, she would likely make a multiple of what she earns in her day job.

    2. Podiatrists aren’t real medical doctors. It’s a _lot _ easier to get into podiatry school than to get into medical school. If someone is a podiatrist, you can safely assume they didn’t have the credentials to get into medical school.

      (There might be the odd person who is genuinely so passionately into feet that they’ll take the massive hit to money and status that is involved in being a podiatrist vs a medical doctor, but they’d be a very rare exception.)

    3. Out of curiosity,can you guys think of an evolutionary reason for foot fetishism? Big boobs are supposed to be a marker of high fertility,but is pretty feet supposed to be the same thing?

      My impression is that,like other unusual fetishes,its just a “glitch” in the system. Gay people for example are evolutionary dead ends,but they still happen. Evolution is far from flawless after all,with our natural instincts being easily hijacked by modern inventions.

    4. Foot fetishes are most definitely an aberration. At an extreme, it is an evolutionary dead-end, just like homosexuality. There is the hypothesis that foot fetishism is the result of some kind of brain malfunction:

      One researcher proposes that the fetish is due to sensory input in the brain. The neuroscientist Vilayanur Ramachandran suggests that the part of the brain that processes the sensation people get from feet is next to the area that perceives genital stimulation, which may account for some people’s foot fetishes.

    5. Maou:

      Who knows, man? A lot of evolutionary explanations are more or less guesswork.

      I think there is, unfortunately, an excessive focus on evolution in right-wing circles atm. It’s an understandable reaction to the anti-scientific views of the left, and of course it’s always good to have a scientific basis for our beliefs, but too often people try to force an evolutionary explanation that sounds good and believable, but in fact has little empirical support.

      I remember once reading someone trying to make an evolutionary argument for why people like pancakes, and it was so poorly written and that I almost hurt myself rolling my eyes so hard. 😀

    6. I’m definitely not into feet. But small feet usually indicates a more petite frame on a woman.

      About pancakes, fuck them. Why would you want to feel weighed down and tired in the morning?

    7. Your observation is correct, but you do not need to look at a woman’s feet to determine if she is petite. I could understand foot fetishes, from a cultural perspective, if our women were walking around in burkas and sandals without socks, for instance, in which case there surely would be a lot of attention on the shape of women’s feet.

  2. On a related note, there are people out there who tell you that the sexes are not to be denoted as male/female but man/woman. It’s the same idea.

    1. I wonder if Transexuals being more accepted in the mainstream nowadays has anything to do with it. I’ve definitely heard of them use those specific words to claim that while they aren’t “biological females”,they are women at heart deep down.

      I feel sorry for these folks. Reality is never going to give them their ideal. No,you shouldn’t be allowed to compete against real women in sports.

      Is “she” really that stupid? I feel like this is in the same line of when women complain about being hit on by “creeps”. its not a real complaint,but a brag disguised as a complaint. Fortunately,someone came by to put “them” in their place:

    2. I think you are onto something. In the end, it does not matter who engages in these silly word games. However, it is entirely plausible that the tranny community is behind a lot of it. At the very least, it is a major force behind the acceleration of certain subversion programs. In the tech world, some of the worst anti-free-speech actors are trannies. Sites like KiwiFarms, one of the last bastions of free speech online, are hated in that community.
