Computer Gender

A French teacher was explaining to her class that in French, unlike English, nouns are designated as either masculine or feminine. "House" is feminine - "la maison." "Pencil is masculine - "le crayon."

A student asked, "What gender is 'computer.'?

Instead of giving the answer, the teacher split the class into two groups, male and female - and asked them to decide for themselves whether "computer" should be masculine or a feminine noun. Each group was asked 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 later review;
  4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your salary 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 realize that if you had waited a little longer, you could have gotten a better model.

The women won.
