Older forms of English kept the Latin gender-specific suffixes -tor and -trix, tor is for men and trix is for women. So a man is an aviator, but a woman is an aviatrix, a man is a gladiator and a woman is a gladiatrix etc.

This is distinct from modern English where tor is for both men and women and trix are for kids.

Two strings are walking down the street. It’s a really hot day and they decide to stop in a bar for a drink. They walk into a bar and the bartender says, “Get out. We don’t serve strings in here.” The two strings leave and are quite upset over this. Outside one string says to the other, “Watch this,” and he messes up his hair really wild. He walks back into the bar and the bartender says, “Hey, aren’t you a string I just kicked out of here?”

The string says, “Nope, I’m a frayed knot.”
