OK… so I sound like a man too… but I don’t buy that THE is male. Seems very sexist to me when I look at THE way the words are divided into genders.
THE thing is, how many times does one use THE word THE to join THE sentence in THE right order so THE sentence won’t confuse THE reader?
You see THE problem with claiming that one THE most used words as male?
A hundred years ago men got to be the only ones who voted too… I guess if they counted the male to female ratio to who does the voting it may also have been quite slanted! I guess some could have said that women did not care about such things…
Now, Laura, don’t be a sorehead. If you are around these people who are more above what it is about that of which we speak, than the ones below many of these who are undecided about these things, (‘whew’) you don’t need to feel bad about your choice of words in your writing.
