The original was:

"If a man speaks in a wood and no women are present is he still wrong".

OK...

When a tree falls over, the breaking wood and the leaves and branches moving send vibrations through the air.

If these vibrations enter someones ear (and that person isn't deaf) they vibrate the eardrum, and the brain interprets the vibrations as sound.

I think that it isn't sound unless it is heard.

If a single tribe dominates the country, then the country is called a "fatherland"; otherwise it is a "motherland". For example, England being the tribal home of the people of English tribe, it is a "fatherland" and so are the countries Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Germany, Afghanistan, etc.; whereas Great Britain, India, Pakistan, U.S.A., etc. are the "motherlands".

They are very good gliders, but they try to do clever acrobatics and looping. But they will stick it even if things are going against them, where as the Jerries will run." Beurling in Malta Spitfire

Its the same reason that the Kilrathi give all their space ships male names and refer to them in male pronouns rather than female.

Nice theory, except other "motherlands" have diverse populations India has multiple ethnicities like Bengali, Parsi, Hindi, etc. etc.

A feminist analysis of modern territorial nationalism underscores instead the constitutive role of the female body in partitioning the world into sovereign spaces "to love and possess, to protect and defend, to protect and die for."
