Compassionate and intuitive are good words to add in my opinion. The thing about femininity is that it is not directly related to women as human beings. Men can have feminine qualities too, so in terms of definitions it comes down to averages. For example, if women are more compassionate than men on average (which is the case), then that word can be included. The same thing applies to other definitions. I don’t really think that definition is a problem. Now, if women are becoming less feminine on a cultural level, Star Trek you can’t always control who comes into your life but you can control which airlock shirt or culture naturally starts using the word differently that’s fine but you don’t get to redefine the word just so you can keep claiming to be feminine. If that’s an option I’d like to redefine muscular and gorgeous to my benefit, but that’s not how language works I tell you that from my actual study of linguistics.

Maybe that’s because words have meanings, that’s why they are the words that are defined in dictionaries. If you prefer to use a different word to describe something/someone, then, by all means, uses a different word to do so, Star Trek you can’t always control who comes into your life but you can control which airlock shirt or even create a new word this happens all the time! Seems very simple, unbiased, non-political, and rational to say such a statement, but I bet I get a bunch of words in response to something so elementary. The way that we define words alters our very perspective of the world. Societal pressures for women to be tender and weak and for men to be strong and hard cause all kinds of problems, from young men committing suicide feeling unable to discuss their problems to young women deliberately, suppressing their talents in more manly areas like STEM or sport. Fair play to her

How lucky we are to live in Britain there must be no other things to spend money on everyone must be fine. All we have to think about is definitions of words. Hey, we could change so many words in the dictionary, there may be a couple of generations of people not understanding what anyone is talking about. Hmm, so that’s close to modern politics anyway. The non-feminine trying to redefine feminine traits so they can apply the term to themselves. Better the non-feminine females invent a new word to describe their personality traits as something different than trying to impose their own view of the world on everyone else. Not every man wants a very feminine woman as the traits of less feminine though still female women (as opposed to lesbians or Tomboys) are also a good fit for some
