Indeed, if you would go down this road, where does it stop? You would be 
eligible getting discussions why the female species is described with a 
longer word than the male. Why is there even a 'man' part in 'woman'. I 
can bet there are man and woman finding this offensive!!!! ;)
What do you think about these symbols for male and female? Should be 
changed also, this male is now pointing up to heaven =  good, and female 
pointing down to hell =  bad? ;)
