It asserts that males and females choose their words differently only because they are their genders. Women are soft spoken and mostly formal. They care about what people say about them and so they choose their words with caution. They do not use obscene words every quite often and always aspire for decency. Men, on the other hand, are bolder in expressing themselves. Their authoritative nature dictates that they are free to say anything without accountability. Therefore, unlike women, men are more obscene (Berlin, 2003).
Views of gender reveal imbalance and some aspects of bias. From this, it is evident that while males are made to exist independently, females do not. It is after the construction of the noun man that a prefix ‘wo’ is added. It is after creating the noun male that the prefix ‘fe’ is added.
Insulting terms present similar inconsistencies; the most common abusive words that women use against men are dogs and bastards. A dog is the most faithful animal on earth. In fact, in most cases, it is said to be man’s best friend. It is therefore possible that the two share some traits. A bastard, on the other hand, is a human in all rights. The two abusive terms in closer look do not insult but simply refer to some aspects of being male. Men, on the other hand, occasionally use derogative words against women. Such insults as bitch, whore, and slut have been used. A bitch is a female dog and is completely unrelated to a woman. Comparing the two is thus insulting. A whore and a slut are two synonyms that imply that a woman is a prostitute. These abuses simply reduce women to their sexuality which is demeaning; women are more than that. However, the choice of insulting terms used by the two is related to the fact that women are not as abusive as men. Men are rough and authoritative in nature; they thus use abusive terms that show this. Women are weak and soft. The terms they thus use are similar.

When we say reaction, a move was made by the family to publish a story. Andrew Malcolm picked up the story. The first sentence is the abstract – there was violence committed against the father, whom, as we all know is Osama bin Laden, and the son Omar and the family are reacting to the violence.
Though the latter statement can be considered as very conservative and unreasonable, there are still groups of people who do agree with the above mentioned idea. Jacques Lacan is said to be one of those people who are considered as a sexist. What is a sexist?
Being the official language of 44 countries, English language is populated by 1.6 billion souls, where one-third of humankind is able to read, write and speak English (Bryson, 1990, p. 181).
The role of English in our present day societies reflects the globalisation and worldliness of this language.
Words like womanly/manly, tomboy/sissy, unfeminine/unmasculine have nothing to do with the person's sex; they are culturally determined, subjective concepts about sex-appropriate traits and behaviors, which vary from one place to another and even from one individual to another within a culture.

One of the most common forms of barriers that exist to communication is with regards to preliminary judgments. As such, these preliminary judgments create an understanding within the mind of stakeholders within the conversation that another individual, or group of
