JFK is the recognized champ, however my fast-talking mother could have whipped the Boston-bred president like a red-headed step-child, mostly because women have a larger everyday lexicon than men.
16,215 versus men's 15,669.
Feeling has to be one of them.
Men only say that word singing the song FEELINGS.
Here's a sampling of words listed by The Magazine which will never cross our lips.
Book club: A female dominated affair, perhaps because women read more fiction, or perhaps because men aren't very good at talking about it.
Accessorize: If men were ever to use this word it would only be in the context of cars.
Empowering: Men never use this word, perhaps because for the 200,000 years humans have been on the planet, men have had all the power.
Burlesque: Something involving strip-tease that can apparently involve the above.
Pilates: Men in the UK, particularly, seem to have no interest in building up their core strength.
Pomegranate: Men seem ill-equipped to understand the significance and full range of superfoods.
Absolutely beautiful: The words women often use to describe friends who are not.
Emotional intelligence: Something that men usually do not possess, instead preferring the kind of intelligence that involves dates of battles.
What are you thinking?: The classic female condition check.
Feminism: If even veteran feminists can't agree on what this means then it's probably best avoided by men.
Airbrushing: The process by which magazine picture editors oppress women in an underhand way.
Why: As in "why do you never call?"Now that I think of it, JFK never used any of these words, because he was a real man.Just don't tell my wife I said that.
