On a current thread the discussion of a woman who is in a relationship , living with a man who is waiting for divorce has made me think about how we use rhetoric, perceive we are living in a more feminist world.
The woman in question has had the following attributed to her .:-
Bit of fluff
Bit on the side
There are thousands of women, perhaps some us have been in the position described, perhaps we have daughters, granddaughters who are now or have been in a partnership with a man who is waiting for his divorce to come through and as we know that can take months.
My question is, are the terms being used fairly toward women in this position in 2019?
Are they old fashioned, are they the rhetoric other woman should consider appropriate , are they names that only have one use and that is to show dislike/ virtuosity above other women/ showing a disapproval of.
I appreciate they are all terms of common parlance, time in memorial but surely the times have changed and divorce, living with somebody is no longer deemed as a sin, disgraceful, shocking .
What do others think and I accept that my opinion is not to every bodies persuasion but really can't the rhetoric be Partner, Other Half, Confidant, Companion , unless of course distain and disapproval is the aim toward the woman but surely we have evolved over the years .
