Should the "women" tag be changed to something more age-neutral?

This tag actually makes me really uncomfortable. I'd prefer it just didn't exist at all. The very fact that it's only currently used on three questions would make it easy to kill and, to add to that, ...

Do we really need the "asperger" tag when we already have the "autism" one?

What about making a new tag to cover both? I propose autism-spectrum. I think it is useful to have a tag to indicate that involved parties are on the spectrum, but as you say, the details of what ...

Should we keep the [interaction] tag?

Isn't interaction just a roundabout way of saying "interpersonal"? That's the entire scope of this site. This feels a bit like a ubiquitous tag that doesn't really aid in any sort of categorization of ...

Would creating an LGBTQ tag make sense?

Should these two specific questions be tagged [feminism]?

When can I use the lgbt+ tag?

In general, I think tags should only be used when they are relevant to the specific situation in the question (and that relevance is clear in the question). Like tag help says: A tag is a word or ...

Should we make a "jealousy" tag?

Do we need tags for both politeness and rudeness?

We need both tags. Consider this case: Someone asks "My friend was very rude to me, how do I initiate a conversation with him about this". Here, the rudeness tag is applicable, while the politeness ...

Do we differentiate [tag:autism] and [tag:asperger]?

How should we define what makes a question asking for academic research on topic?

Should the "women" tag be changed to something more age-neutral?

Should the "women" tag be changed to something more age-neutral?

On top of what Catija said, the tag is essentially a meta tag, as it can't be used on its own. That's why we should kill it with fire altogether, instead of changing it to some more age-neutral tag.
