Calling manual pages, "man pages", always seemed a little... what?... androcentric?... to me.
...Like looking at relationship classifieds for gay men.

Here's my new alias:
Code:
alias woman='man'

Now when I need help, I check the woman pages. ;)

"man pages" is even more worrying when you consider one meaning of page is "boy employed as a personal attendant of a person of rank" [The Concise Oxford Dictionary]

Woman already exists in emacs - it enables to browse man pages without calling man.
