Extended is a term understood by older typographers. "Wide" seems more descriptive and likely to be literally understood better by a broader audience. "Extended" can mean more languages included to some people.
I have always had a problem associating gender with a typeface. Type can be used for any purpose by anyone. The problem for me is the stereotype issue. A typeface like Curl[z] emits the stereotype of some women but surely not many. What is gained by associating a gender with a face? I have seen Futura used successfully in women's fashion ads but don't see it as particularly feminine. I would be curious what others may think about adding gender connotation to fonts?
