"I have often deplored that unlucky adjustment which allotted to the medicines, countries, flavouring extracts, and the like, names which should have been reserved for women.

"The name of the first human woman, given as Celebrated Seahouse in the previous edition, now changes to Red Sea Turtle." --Dennis Tedlock, preface to Popol Vuh (1996)
