Yeah I don't really see the sexism TK. If you said "shut up man" would it be sexist? I say "woman" in that way all the time, and never with the intention of sexism.
where I live lads use 'woman' as insult.

e.g. 'you're such a woman' - sexism

Not really. Most men would be offended if called feminine, just as most women would (I'm sure) be offended at being called masculine. It's not sexist, because it works both ways.

It doesn't have to be. Take it lightly and in good humour and it stops becoming abusive.

On another note, 227 guests!!! WHY!!!

yeah but if you said to a woman 'you're such a man' i'm sure she would take offence as well

people can use both as insults

ok ...no sense arguing about it. it's a matter of opinion that is all.

yeah...but we don't mean it as a bad thing about men....the bad thing is that a woman is masculine, which is not desirable (for a woman). men use it as a 'women are weak' thing

Reds don't exist anymore (they used to). The lowest colour you can get is a grey - the member with the lowest rep is Mad Caddie (but he's banned so I don't know if it counts).
