In­ef­fa­ble sex

The Daily Telegraph - - Letters To The Editor -

SIR – How is womxn (re­port, Oc­to­ber 11) to be pro­nounced? San­dra Pearce

SIR – Is it pro­nounced “wohmick­sen”? Is the x si­lent, re­duc­ing us to a baby­ish gur­gle of “wmmn”? This lat­est fad seems eas­ier to type than to say, which rather be­trays its ori­gins as some­thing cooked up by a tiny fringe of cranks on the in­ter­net and re­lent­lessly retweeted into dis­course, not some­thing wanted by the ac­tual com­mu­nity.
