The entire character 嫑 seems to be pronounced or translated to "bao". What does this character 嫑 mean?
Specifically, I'd really like to know the meaning of the middle symbol on its own as well. The top one is bù 不 (no, not, negative) and the bottom is nǚ 女 (female, woman).
The closest thing I could find was xī 西 (west, western). Without the "bu" on top we get 要 yào (to want, etc.).
I'm quite new to Mandarin Chinese, but am quite familiar with the basics so far. (I've complete about half-way through some popular apps.) I am very interested in how the symbols combine into new characters and change meanings.
