Today's Political Incorrectness

I came to the realization that Womyn is a misspelling.

I came to this conclusion not because it opts to remove the 'a/e' from man/men to make it less tied to the gender. My issue is the choice to use 'y.' It would seem if one is trying to sever all connections to the y chromosome. Than the proper spelling for the double x endowed would be:

womxn.
