I'm with Weisse Dame. Adding "ess" or specifying "female" or "lady" or "woman" shows that women are still struggling with being viewed as equals. I even stopped calling female actors "actresses" because I don't believe in the distinction.

NewYorkTaxi, if someone called me a shootress, I'd say, "No, I'm a shooter. Just because I have a pair of tits doesn't mean you have to call me a whole new word."
