Lol... I lived in Singapore and right now in China for university and I have never seen anyone thinking that ‘female’ is a derogatory word. Misusage of words is one thing, but thinking ‘female’ is a derogatory word is honestly one of the most degenerate things I have encountered this year lol. “Don’t view women as women but derogatorily as ‘females” like jesus christ... Oh, funny thing, I remember filling out quite a few forms for visa, ic, university etc, and there would be a (male/female) part that you have to circle. Imagine getting triggered when filling those forms. My god.
