These names and symbols were put out of usage by patriarchy by renaming fem (wo) +man, in 11th Century, and a poet changing feme to fe +male for the purpose of rhyme, patriarchy being OK with this mutilation of feme.

The symbols feminine and femininity cannot have come from any other basic morpheme but “fem”.

These certainly cannot have come from wo +man which does not have any hint of ‘fem’ in it. How does one get the “femininity” from the sound wo with +man?
