This. All of this.

MUTHAFUCKIN THANK YOU!

In fact, using the words ‘female’ OR ‘male’ when writing about human beings just sounds overly clinical, and it’s something I never do, and it puts me off when I see it. You know, ‘she’ and ‘he’ or whatever pronoun works just fine. You don’t absolutely have to strive to use different words in as many places as possible -it ends up sounding weird.
Sorry, I know that wasn’t related much to the original post, I just needed to say it.

Hmm, but how about when someone mentions either “male character” and “female character” in a text, and are referring to a human? Then, does it sound better with “woman/man character?” Is it different when talking about fiction?
