Isn’t it interesting that in English the words for the two most common genders both anchor on “male” in some way? In other languages there is much more separation from a linguistic perspective. Compare “woman/man” and “female/male” with:

German: “Frau/Mann”
Danish: “Kvinde/Mand”

I wonder if there is significance to this that goes beyond mere words. Maybe there isn’t, but I find it interesting.
