Women are called "the fair sex".
So, what are men called?
Come on, I'm serious. Is there a comparable phrase in English?
In Arabic we do, we call me aljins alkhashin الجنس الخشن
which means rough or coarse as apposed to fair! :P
'Rough' in this context would refer to the sexual act IMO.
The fair sex and the strong sex.
I'm not a teacher.
Hi Ducklet Cat,
In my humble opinion the proper term is “the sterner sex”
So it seems there is no equivalent to it used commonly in English.
Thanks again for your instructive suggestions.
men are called to be belonging to sterner sex.
