Quoteexplain gender neutrality to the French and Germans
Quote from: Ithoriel on 20 May 2022, 02:56:36 PMThere are many reasons English is the lingua franca of our age rather than French or German and I'm sure one of those reasons is the absurdity of having to work out the gender of inanimate objects. There are enough problems agreeing the descriptions of the various points on the sliding scale of human genders without having to consider whether the sideboard is male, female or gender fluid
