to the 'gentlemen'

ladies and gentlemen, they say, always.

i wonder....

why are men gentlemen and no such adage to women?

may be cos men are harsh by nature. and they need to be specified as 'gentlemen'

and its understood that women are gentle.

so, no such prefix for women.

no, am no sexist.

it was just a thought.....

i am not a sexist either. but could it be that men "can" be gentle? as for women no word has been specified. i guess early human understood women better.
