Your responses in this thread have always been very focused and thoughtful so I do appreciate that given that that seems to be a rairty when it comes to talking about these things.
I suppose I can understand what you're getting at with the shapes, as I was just having a similar thought before. But really, doesn't that only work if we're only talking about triangles? What if the truth is that male are circles and women are squares? And although you can try to squash yourself straight, or shave off your corners, one will never truly be the other. I've never argued that any man or woman can't express themselves however they see fit, my problem has always been with the literal definition of the word. Or at least what the word is supposed to represent. My entire point is that the only way a word can exist and still hold meaning is if there is a throughline between everything under that label. All of the triangles may differ in their angles and sizes, but at the end of the day, they're all still triangles. To claim that all you need to be an rhombus is to say you are negates the entire point of calling something a triangle in the first place. Not to let the metaphors get out of hand, but I'm sure you see what I'm trying to say.
