Hmmmm...I've seen many more men giving Otaktay a hard time than women, 
personally. The one woman I've seen approach him with questions about his 
garb and persona was the certain Mistress Brianna who loaned you 
feastgear when you were out earlier this year -- who'd be AWFULLY amused 
if she thought anyone were calling her names.

I'm sure Otaktay appreciates your admiration of his persona, but I'm also
certain that he would be appalled at disparagement of any ladies,
no matter their physical (or temperamental) attributes. 

"...Car nulle honnours n'em puet venir
En ce c'om mesdie de femme,
Si n'iert fors pour la haute gemme,
La roinne des cieus Marie...
Et tout de femmes issu sommes,
Si leur devons honnour porter..." -- Jean de Conde'

or as Dafydd ap Gwilym wrote,
"Merch sydd decaf blodeuyn
Yn y nef ond Duw ei hun.
O wraig y ganed pob dyn
O'r holl bobloedd ond tridyn."

Be careful in your defense of others that you do not injure their cause
through incautious word choice...
