Why don't people like the sound of "woman president"?

MANY people find the phrase "female president" annoying. But oddly enough, many others find "woman president" to be a problem, too. The problem is not that these expressions are ungrammatical, as Johnson explained in his past column. Yet both have their critics. Why? The objections to "female" are fairly straightforward.
