first of all, the fact that they’re different is telling right from the start. any times there are inequities in the way you use language is a red flag
“women” and “men” are terms exclusive to human beings; “males” and “females” is dehumanizing and othering. so when you refer to men with the word “men” but to women with the word “females,” it tells me that you subconsciously (and possibly consciously) think of men as having more humanity and agency than women.
if someone says “females” but also consistently says “males,” then that’s probably just how they talk? but once you think about it, you’ll notice that almost anyone who refers to women as “females” then turns around and uses “men,” not “males.” it’s really creepy and gross and kind of terrifying .
sometimes we can’t help using female (like if i want to refer specifically to female actresses) but female should always be used as an adjective, not a noun. the way it is culturally used as a noun is dehumanizing and creepy, esp since “male” is rarely ever used the same way

we all have that one friend who is probably secretly a magical girl.
watching people piss themselves and act like i’m the devil reborn bc i told a boy that i hope he spills his cereal on the floor: an autobiography
you’re going to tell me a world with dragons and magic are less alien than one ruled by women?
that a matriarchy is less possible in a fantasy land when you see ants and bees, some of the most complicated structures on this planet which are comprised of females?
and don’t you dare try to say that if magic were real women would not be powerful, that they would end up at the mercy of men
what is the point of writing something unreal, something fantastic and wonderous if you cannot change the dynamics that we live with everyday
Give me one good reason. (hint, there is none)
so next time you try to tell me bullshit shut the fuck up
because I don’t want to hear your excuses. I will continue to create worlds where women are revered, where women sit atop thrones in their queendoms
and laugh and laugh as people try to say ‘it’s not realistic’
because if that’s too much for you, put down the fiction
