My friend sent me this link for an amusing list of everyday items and their genders – for example,
KIDNEYS – female , because they always go to the bathroom in pairs
HAMMER – male, because it hasn’t evolved much over the last 5000 years but it’s handy to have around.
Obviously sweeping generalisations about gender are not very constructive – I, for example, hate it when people insist on going to the loo with me* – but I think the list is kinda funny. Does that make me a bad person?
* Hate it, hate it, hate it.
