9    In a later note, the writer added: "[The teacher] was fired two years after this incident. According to my advisor at that time, his attitude toward female students was one of the reasons.

20    There is another whole issue as to what the corresponding female term would be and why none are flattering‑-i.e. one based on sexual prowess. Brood sow? Whore? Nymphomaniac? This is too far off the subject to explore here.

21    It is not entirely fair to put all the blame on the word "man". It is also easy to find sentences such as "People won't give up power. They'll give up anything else first‑-money, home, wife, children‑-but not power" [Miller et al. 1980, pages 33‑34].
