She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.
Oh, my my! Oh my, she flies!

What's an insult from a woman?
She battled through in every kind of tribulation,
She revelled in adventure and imagination.
She never listened to no hater, liar,
Breaking boundaries and chasing fire.

Something they say which implies they find one unattractive/unappealing/contemptible...in this instance.

it wasn't a pre-requisite, dont worry....i'm a little surprised, it was a relatively big disney film in the late 70s - i was very aware of it over here and i'm only a year or two older...round about the same time as pete's dragon and just before the black hole, iirc....

I think you missed the point of my question. Adult humans with wombs are known as women. 'Lady' is some mealy-mouthed shite.

We've had this conversation before fal. You took issue with my referring to you lot as birds, so I started calling you ladies instead. At the time you said you weren't a massive fan of the term but worse things happen at sea, or words to that effect.

I'm not a fan of it, as I think I've just demonstrated again. Why can't you just call them what they are? Are you allergic to the word or something?

Yeah pretty much, as are quite a few "ladies" i've met in the past. The trouble is it's got the word men/man in it.
