"girls"

A few weeks ago my sister was harassing me for refering to female humans of about my own age as "girls." She wasn't much help in coming up with a reasonable alternative, but she objected to "girl."

So i would like to point out this page from one of my favorite webcomics by a "female human" who considers herself at least a part-time feminist. The general idea is telling guys how _not_ to refer to "female humans." Note however what term she _does_ use.

And on an only barely related tangent, "Short Skirt, Long Jacket" is a very addictive song, despite the fact it describes a "female human" who is almost the exact antithesis of what i normally look for.
