the feminist/lesbian spelling of "woman". also has political implications. not all feminists/lesbians use or even like this term, but it's been claimed as a subtle empowerment thing by both groups in general.

This is a term used by feminists who feel that having the word "man" in the word "woman" makes women a subset of men. So, to make themselves a non subset, they changed the letter 'e' to a 'y'.
I am not a subset, I am a womyn.
a feminist term..empowered woman
Another spelling for "women" coined by neurotic feminists for other equally neurotic feminists with the unbridled arrogant mindset that their dated, selfish, totally "unequal" cause justly warrants a ridiculous, contrary-to-diction respelling of an long accepted, objective English word.
"I am a gentleman. I respect women for their independence and ability to hold children unlike myself. I could never do that."
"Shut the hell up you misogynistic pig and learn to spell correctly. Your diction exhibits hatred and inequality. It's "womyn" now. Sucks to be a man like yourself with your dirty penis. I will never have a boyfriend or a husband because men will never go for me because I am most likely ugly, overly arrogant, and/or had a past relationship with an abnormal man who misrepresented an entire population which in consequence has caused a psychological distress and/or neurosis within my mind to reject the entire male population as hopeful and/or completely acceptable."
