    Arrow ♂ male or female ♀



    ♂ male or female ♀








    A language teacher was explaining to her class that in French, nouns unlike their
    English counterparts, are grammatically designated as masculine or feminine.

    "House" in French, is feminine -"la maison," "Pencil" in French, is masculine "le crayon."

    One puzzled student asked, "What gender is computer?" The teacher did not know,
    and the word was not in her French dictionary.

    So for fun she split the class into two groups appropriately enough, by gender and
    asked them to decide whether "computer" should be a masculine or a feminine noun.

    Both groups were required to give four reasons for their
    recommendation.

    The men's group decided that computer should definitely be of the feminine gender ("la
    computer"), because

    1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic
    2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is
    incomprehensible to everyone else
    3. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for possible later review
    4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your
    paycheque on accessories for it.

    The women's group, however, concluded that computers should be masculine "le
    computer") because:

    1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on.
    2. They have a lot of data but still can't think for themselves
    3. They are supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they ARE the
    problem
    4. As soon as you commit to one, you realise that if you had waited a little longer you
    could have gotten a better model.
