In a word...yes.

I find women who get fussy about little things like
being called "chairman" rather then "chairwoman" or 
"chair" are generally insecure and overly sensitive.
A strong woman makes her own place, no matter what
she's called.


Dunno about you, but I've yet to read a political diatribe 
featuring naked pregnant women dancing in moonbeams 
that I found very practical or implementable.
