Suppose a female prisoner escapes. If the police want to find the person, do we still call it a manhunt?

Would it be a womanhunt?

Its only a womanhunt if its a man who identifies as a woman.

If she is (1) in jail, and (2) escapes, she is more of a man than most guys I know.

This is a question kind of similar to: if a deaf person has a court proceeding, is it still called a hearing?

We can, of course, use a different term for the news—just say its a search, if the escapee is female. But to use the term ‘manhunt’ does not really determine the sex of the escapee. ‘Manhunt’ means the procedure itself.

@smudges A ‘hearing’ is to hear what the defendant has to say—and for a judge or jury to ask questions—as part of a proceeding to determine whether there is reason to continue,

It is unlikely that the judge or jury would be deaf. They’d most likely do something else.

@Yellowdog Maybe we can include your sense of humor in the ‘manhunt’ since it seems to be lost.
