God, Ignorant, and Love: HE WO MAN FE MALE HU MAN PER SON visual-poetry »swofehuper« by richard tipping [via] mitosisisyourtosis men fabricated the idea that they are the default sex to compensate for their biological inferiority and general superfluousness this is not just the "natural order this is the language of a patriarchal culture rhysiare Omg no, you are wrong on so many levels and as a linguist this makes me ache something terrible. In my linguistics class in undergrad, we actually made fun of people who think like you along these lines and for good reason because you are wholly ignorant and are choosing to spin narratives about things and fields which you know completely nothing about yet pretend you do 1. She: This word evolved naturally from Old English from seo/heo which were just words to refer to feminine-female people evolving from Proto- Germanic words meaning that/there. He as a word evolved from the same ideas but Proto-Germanic words for "this/here'. Your idea of patriarchal language" further falls apart when you compare this part of English to other Germanic languages, of which English is related, the words in German for he and she are "er" and "sie", completely unrelated So it is by clear happenstance, not some patriarchal conspiracy that the words "he" and "she" n English have similar form. 2. Woman: Oh god this one always gets my goat when people go for this one. Man did not used to mean "male", man used to mean humanity human being the old words in Old English for male adult person and female adult person were erman" and "wifman" respectively, we can see this relation in words like werewolf and wife as being the remnants of the base "wer and the base "wif- Woman evolved phonologically from the word "wifman" by natural processes where the "f sound dropped and the 'i' became lax. Man dropped its "wer stem for reasons mostly unknown but l can guarantee have nothing to do with patriarchy" because phonological change has no basis in that 3. Female: Male and Female actually come etymologically from two completely different words. Male comes from Old French masle" which meant masculine, while Female came from Old French as well "femella" which meant young woman. This is another case, just like he and she where the words coincidentally ended up looking similar without having any direct correlation in historical linguistic processes to make them as such 4. Human: This word etymologically derives from Proto-Indo- European "ghomon" which means earthly being as opposed to heavenly being which would refer to gods. You have some small glimmer of hope here in that the word does eventually branch off into the word for "man" in some languages but this is still too small of a precedent to base any conspiratorial thinking like you are doing off of 5. Person: This one offends me the most, simply because love the fuck out of Etruscan language and your continued ignorance just irks me at this point. Person derives from persona" from Latin which meant the same meaning, which ultimately derived from phersu" Etruscan for mask' as Etruscans would often have theatre performers use masks to give identity to the performers. So never once did "person" have any meaning to do with son". So yes, this is the natural order or language. Please never proselytise your faulty ideology and misandrist thinking within speaking about word origins and morphology again, as unless you actually do fact checking, l will school the everloving hell out of you, stay in your lane. Someone call the police, I've just seen some shots fired
