Apparently there are a lot of people who are confusing "hoe" with "ho". Believe it or not, they are two completely different things. The correct definitions for "hoe" are:
1. A garden tool. A long-handled implement having a thin, flat blade usually set transversely, used to break up the surface of the ground, destroy weeds, etc.
-verb (used with object)
2. To dig, scrape, weed, cultivate, etc., with a hoe.
-verb (used without object)
3. To use a hoe.
This is straight from Dictionary.com. There's no mention of a woman in there. Hopefully people will stop confusing the two. It kind of makes people who do misuse the word look illiterate, and that's pretty sad.
A hoe is used to loosen up dirt. A ho does not work this way.
