    I asked the same question, when I was at her age, they could not say anything and just said what the woman said, it implies both. I wish there was a social media at that time 😉

    we bear both the good and bad of the meaning of a word... it's man-made wonder... aswell as man-made calamity... learn to be on both sides of the coin... feminism isn't only abt. being anti patriarchal... it always existed... it does exist now and will exist later

    If kids asked this question we can understand but if a aged woman say this, there is no question behind this.

    We can mold the way we use language but ultimately we as speakers know wht we are referring to when we say man-made or anything like that . Words are arbitrary. They don't have a strict meaning attached to them. We have made meanings out of them and only we decide wht meaning we refer to when we use them. Language is a fluid thing if u think change is needed change it in your speech...Its as simple as that.

    I had asked these question when I was a kid too. In fact whenever we talk of God we always address as "HE" "HIM" I used to make it a point to complete my sentence with a HER when we talk of God. Am glad social media is carrying these questions far and wide now. But having said that there are terms like "mother board" " Mother nature" used and accepted. It seems so natural when we address our nation as "She" Just saying
