n.— «Sex and the City’s acknowledgement that life could be good without a man in it, particularly if you were rich, led to a whole new generation of emancipated, moneyed women shouting loudly about just how much they loved their single status. So much so in fact, that there’s even a term for it: Freemale.» —“It’s OK to be single-minded” by Emma Cowing The Scotsman (Glasgow, Scotland) May 20, 2008. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
