A professor came under fire after he suggested that people should stop mentioning female girls because the term & # 39; creepy sexual overtones & # 39; has.

Gender and sexuality studies Professor Michael Flood said the use of the word girls & # 39; patronises & # 39; women.

The professor at Queensland University of Technology was enormously condemned online and by psychologist Michael Carr-Gregg and called it & # 39; ridiculous & # 39 ;.

& # 39; This is the extreme left that wants to control the language and then tries to control you, & # 39; he said to Neil Mitchell 3AW.

& # 39; This is more left-wing linguistic perversion and I don't like it.

& # 39; For me, this is part of the small, small movements, subtle edits, and constant pressure to talk, think, behave and believe as these people do. & # 39;

& # 39; But if you really think about it, it is quite a problem to address an adult woman as a girl, and it's time to consider getting the word out of our vocabulary, & # 39; wrote the author.

She lists the dictionary definition of the word and explains that the word & # 39; engaging & # 39; is used and maintains a lack of respect for women.

Ms. Florio gave five reasons why people should stop mentioning female girls, but was called because she claimed that there was & # 39; no male equivalent & # 39; is.

& # 39; That's just waste, they're boys, & # 39; said Mr. Carr-Gregg.

& # 39; This is the extreme left who wants to master the language and then tries to control you. This is a more left-wing linguistic perversion. & # 39;

She also indicates that using the word makes women children, has creepy sexual overtones, perpetuates our unhealthy obsession with youth in women, and prevents us from treating each other as equals.

Twitter users criticized Mr. Flood, while many women said to call him that there is no problem with using the word, because they are.

& # 39; & # 39; Girl & # 39; and & # 39; boy & # 39; are both terms that can be used as pejoratives and sweethearts. If you or a listener are unable to distinguish the difference in use from the context, then it is not you, & # 39; someone wrote.

& # 39; Some people really dig deep to find something to complain about, & # 39; wrote another.

& # 39; I have no trouble finding a real problem instead of trivial nonsense, & # 39; a woman answered.

& # 39; I don't mind being called a girl, & # 39; another woman answered.

& # 39; At a certain point in time, we were all friends, & # 39; tweeted another woman.
