MAN more politically correct than PERSON historically

Man and Mankind are sex neutral while Person is not.

In the past, we have wer[e]man (male man), and wyfman (wife) or wombman (female man).

Hence the term werewolf (MALE man wolf) has a distinct meaning. Female werewolves are she-wolves in their wolf form but are wer[e]man in their man form, hence male.

Thus, a "wo-she-wolf" or "wyf-she-wolf", or some variation with vowel fixing, means female in both wolf form and man form.

Person means Peer's son, the son of Peerage (Upper Nobles). Only male men, the sons of upper nobles can be persons.
