Hmm, very interesting.

Why are ships always women? Ships are always a "she." I'm not sure how to feel about that. And why is it Mother Nature and Father Time? Surely that should be Person Nature and Person Time. :D

Well, that clinches it. No more, Oh man or aw man. AW FU CK IT IS!

tender tender feelings we have nowadays. Veal feelings. Vealings.

What about a language that separates according to sex? Or that associates a word w/either male or female according to general use? Is that also making us the down trodden?
