"Witch nature essentially connected to femininity."

Astonishing.

Why is the nature of witches essentially connected to femininity?

Metacausality, i.e. "Pullman said so and we didn't feel like changing it"?

Not especially. And if I did, they wouldn't necessarily cross into the universe. So the alethiometer's answer might still be "asking why witches are feminine is like asking why pi is between 3 and 4".

Alethiometer, are daemons magical constructs, organisms in their own right, or something else entirely?
