isn't it th opposite ? in terms of words - wo/man contains man but man does
not contain woman tho when we write man in th generic we mean human kind ...

but it's up to each of us to decide our own way o using words of inclusion /
open ended / malle-able . . . man may be a musician but i'd be egotistic to
think birds don't know a damn thing about melody . . and jamming with th
rain . . .

perhaps it's like seeing th forest from th trees . . .

tilting at wind mills with best regards, macCormac
