Roseanne wants to end use of the word ‘woman’

Rising like a phoenix from the ashes of defeat, fifth-place presidential candidate Roseanne Barr took to Twitter to announce a new political cause. Surely, such a great mind would have big ideas moving forward, unencumbered by the constraints of leading the free world. Or not.

Replace “woman” with “female”? Do we really need to tell you what happened next?

What are the other four? Then again, there is quite a menu to choose from.

Oh well, at least we’re glad that Roseanne is coping well with her loss. However, all of the male Twitchy staffers would like to gently remind Ms. Barr that our wives and girlfriends would beat us to a bloody pulp if we downgraded them from “women”” to  “females.” Just a thought.

  • Brett McMicken

    i wouldn’t use either word to describe her.

  • Brett McMicken

    what a maroon! does she not notice that “female” has the word “male” in it? i guess that is what comes from being a bottomless pit of hatred mixed with hot air

    • RalphTheCat

      ll held together by a tri-axle truckbed of lard?

  • Brett McMicken

    instead of “i am woman, hear me roar” it is now “i am female, watch me tweet my psychoses”

    • TJCrane_NCC1701

      Don’t forget that Rosanne’s and Nancy Pelosi’s va-jay-jay “let out a sigh of relief”. Smelled like tuna and had to call the EPA (in bio-hazard suits) to clear out the ensuing dust and cob-webs !

    And I thought the vagina meme was still trending among Hollywood Lib femanwomales. Go figure.

    • Brett McMicken

      women in flyover country worry about making ends meet from one week to the next. women in la-la liberal land (with money enough to burn a wet michael moore) worry about “woman” vs “female”

  • Steve_J

    Why wouldn’t female be patriarchal? Wo-man, Fe-male see my point.

    • Brett McMicken

      sir, you are using entirely too much common sense!

      • Steve_J

        I just hope she doesn’t attempt the National Anthem again.

        • Brett McMicken

          i think, at this stage in the game, she’s doing good to have the occasional person ask for her autograph

          • SwTk

            I’m confused, is Roseanne Barr a woman? I had no idea?

        • TheOriginalDonald

          I just hope Carl Lewis doesn’t attempt the National Anthem (UH OH!)

    • TugboatPhil

      When the Post Office wanted to go away from Mailman, because it wasn’t gender inclusive, I suggested Personperson. They went with Letter Carrier.

      • Jim Denney

        I call mine “Mailnextdoor.”

  • madhatterhamlet

    I prefer the word lady but in Roseanne case woman female or lady apply more like person

  • poljunkie♪

    Roseanne has had WORK. (plastic surgery…. Looks a lot better)

    Well I dont know about woman, but I propose that during an election year all candidates refrain from using the word, rape, abortion and contraceptive. If they do I guarantee the Republicans would probably do a lot better.

  • Mark Rothrock

    Female has the word male in it.

  • ProfShadow

    Maybe we should use beotch?

  • marcellucci

    Yes, sir…..yes, sir…I gotta name for Rosie, and she’ll wear it like a badge….

    It sounds like “runt” but it starts with “C” and that rhymes with “P” and that stands for “Pool”….Right here in River City….


    • Becci

      Great Honk! *dies laughing*

  • moonsbreath

    I agree, let’s not call Roseanne a “female” or “woman.” She’s just an old crone.

  • Kunoichi

    I’d like to see a resurgence of the word, “weremen.” Man used to be a gender neutral term, while woman and wereman denoted gender. I think weremen everywhere need to rise up and reclaim their gender! 😀

  • Mike Rogers

    It’s OK if Mizz Barr doesn’t want to be a woman.

  • drschuetz

    How far would her IQ score have to come up to reach stupid?

  • Claude AndPam Parish

    I’ll stop using the word “woman” when I’m talking about her.

  • medicinewomantwo

    I never associated that word or anything remotely feminine about her…..ever.

  • Cbfordz

    Gee, while we’re at it, why not ‘split-tail’, ‘in-board’, or simply ‘gash’? What an idiot.

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      In-board? Is that like indoor plumbing, as opposed to outdoor plumbing?

  • RichardBlaine

    There is no politically correct word for a human not of the male sex.

  • Maria Seeger

    Excuse me, Roseanne, but you got it wrong. As any self-respecting NOW feminist knows, it’s supposed to be “Womyn”. Get it right.

    • Maximum Oakland

      Sorry lady that has the “Y” chromosome in it. The proper term is “Womxn”.

      • Maria

        This is all so hard to remember!!

      • Maria Seeger

        That doesn’t make sense…but then again, neither does Roseanne.

  • TundraThunder

    We should start a list of songs and lyrics that would have to be changed retroactively and send them to that “female”!

    • AMERICAN Kafir™(KAdams)

      “More than a Female!” ~ BeeGees
      “American FeMALE” ~Bob Seeger? ( I don’t really know…)
      “Witchy woman” could just be “Bitchy Female”…

      • TundraThunder

        Actually, “American Female (Woman)” was The Guess Who.
        “You Are The Female” – Firefall
        “Female” – John Lennon and Peter and Gordon (Different Lyrics)
        “Female Tonight” – America

  • Rafael Eduardo Peña-Rios Riber
  • Dusquene Whistler

    Female is an adjective.

    • SpinMeNot

      Will you buy a dictionary, or just try google … for God’s sake — can we get third grade grammar right?

      or denoting the sex that can bear offspring or produce eggs,
      distinguished biologically by the production of gametes (ova) that
      Noun:A female person, animal, or plant.
      Synonyms:adjective. feminine – womanly – womanlike

      noun. woman – she – wife – lady – hen

      Limp dick illiterate morons. Its bad enough I have to teach the liberal-progressive pukes the difference between perception and reality, but this, really?

      Stop whistling in class, pay attention.
      *bangs head on desk*

      -:disclaimer, yes the world’s worst typist just lost it over grammar — but come on, its a desert topping, its a floor wax! :–


    ???? Ya mean like “feMALE” as opposed to “woMAN” Roseanne? She has truly gone ’round the bend

  • dunst43

    Whatever happened to ‘lady’?

    • Maria

      I prefer that personally when speaking of myself, or any ladies I know. But woman shouldn’t bother anyone really.. It’s not like “get in the kitchen and bake me a pie, woman!” sounds any nicer when you say “get in the kitchen and bake me a pie, lady!”

  • kate_middleton

    Wow, she’s really tackling the important issues. It’s a shame she didn’t win the election.

  • Erick Brockway

    I quit calling Roseanne a “woman” years ago. She’s morphed into…what I don’t know.

    Wonder if Helen Reddy will re-cut “I Am Woman” to suit Rosie? Betting…not.

  • philomena

    Evidently her parents had good reason to confine her to a mental health facility.

  • brianmouland

    The election is over now eff off for the next 50 years Rosie!

  • Conrad2010

    Maybe if it were to be spelled. ‘Whoa-man.

    I’m ahead of the curve. I quit calling her a “woman” years ago. You’re welcome, Roseanne.

  • Jefferson Tea Party

  • Mary

    Is Rosanne not at the age where she is turning into a man???

    • Maria

      I don’t think she is taking her Premarin or any herbal alternative that women (oops used that word) are supposed to take after menopause…MENopause..haha..

  • Teresa Davis McCormick

    Roseanne must be lonely so she’s tweeting nonsense to get noticed. While my kids are asking “who is she?”

  • Maria

    Seriously?! Call me Lady then.

  • AlertUpUSA

    How does “Fe-man” sound?

    Adds the “Fe” and removes the “wo”. I dunno, I felt the need to spell it out….

    • Maria

      HA! I read that and thought of a manly woman.

  • TocksNedlog

    To the twit twitterer above, “female” can be either an adjective OR a noun, depending on how it is used in a sentence.

  • TocksNedlog

    In case anybody cares (I don’t, really) Roseanne — by way of whatever feminist screeds she reads — is referring to the etymology of the words in question. The word “woman” derives from two Old English words: wif + mann (“wife of man”) which explains her objection. The word “female”, on the other hand, comes from the Latin “femina”, which is also the basis of “feminist” and “feminism”, and — in the original Latin — is NOT formed by slapping a prefix onto the word for “man”. But, of course, those patriarchal bastards that came up with the English version of “femina” did just that; so, as others here have pointed out, same difference.

  • TocksNedlog

    Roseanne should be very happy with me.

    I haven’t referred to her as a “woman” in years.

    • SpinMeNot

      Damn it, I almost got to say it … beat me to it.

  • Guest

    Reminds me of the scene in “Legally Blonde” when the feminist student wants Harvard Law to change “semester” to “ovester.”

  • orringtonmom (D)

    don’t care.

  • NCRelite

    When a maaaaaaaaaaaan loves a female!~

  • Rob Stevely

    I stopped years ago using the word woman when referring to Roseanne.

  • gman213

    How about Heifer? As in Cud chewing cow!

  • Jesse Perlstein-Mizrachi

    … Some times I don’t feel so bad knowing that so many people my age are illiterate when I see older morons like this struggling.

    Gender (male or female) objects have a gender, not people. This is more apparent in languages like Spanish that denote gender on almost every noun (la, las, el, los). Sex (woman or man) applies to living things, living things have a sex that denotes their reproductive characteristics.

    • Jesse Perlstein-Mizrachi

      You simply cant deny the existence of either or their value in society, remove them and we have no way to address each other other than “comrade”.

  • Danny Meeker

    After reading Roseanne’s comments, I’m left to wonder that perhaps the libs are right about third-trimester abortions….

  • PAttyconservatopia

    Does she not realize fe-male comes from the root “male”? Is she that dumb?

  • PAttyconservatopia

    I think she smoked too much pot. She has cognitive dysfunction for sure. Neurons aren’t firing as they should be.

  • Jedd McHead

    A Rosanne, by any other name, would still be just as dopey.

  • rant stocks

    I know what a replacement would be for Rosey…Stupidcunt..

  • RalphTheCat

    What can you say about Roseanne except that she would back buzzards off roadkill.
