    I've not seen the video - I don't care enough to watch. The quote is from the Times, which isn't usually a safe place for virtue signalling - nor a fan of Trudeau.
    Hmm. I'm beginning to suspect that you need to find all the packing the computer came in...

    Woman is presumably womb - man, very sexist to name them after a reproductive organ. Maybe equality would be best served by referring to men as knobman or summit.

    Woman comes from old English "wifman" (wife-man), and stems from a time when "man" simply meant "human". Womb is Old English, with wamb as a variant spelling, meaning "belly, bowels, heart, uterus." It's not connected to woman.

    Incidentally, the word "human" comes from French "humain", so it not connected to the word "man".

    I don't think referring to men as "summit" will work well.

    I've seen the video. I can't see May or any British politician exposing themselves like that (except for BoJo, fnarrr fnarrr) so he deserves some kudos for that, but it does seem to me be a slightly sarcastic/exasperated response to a very long-winded and weird question, from someone who is part of a Korean cult. It worked in that it shut her down.
