I meant to add, on the euphemism/science/abstractness front ----

I have read discussions of the supposedly differential anatomical locations
in which males and felames supposedly tend to store supererogatory adiposity
and lipidity. I bet if you searched the medical and pop-medical literature
on obesity and related issues from the last couple of decades you'd find
phrasing very much like the above, for both sexes.
