    In German “mädchen” – a girl – is neuter.

    American English needs a gender neutral pronoun and a multiparty object pronoun badly.

    ‘Neutral’ sounded to neutral, so I used neuter. But let’s just say that in German she is it.

    You can tell this is an old strip. Gender is still a grammatical term, not a biological one yet.

    ‘Neuter’ is the correct grammatical term, not neutral.

    I don’t remember this particular strip in all my years reading C&H. I’m trying hard NOT to laugh out loud here in my cube!

    One of my favorite quotes from my favorite author: “Words have sex in foreign parts.” – Nanny Ogg in Witches Abroad by Terry Pratchett.

    Russian kids learn gun safety and how to assemble/reassemble. We teach kids to put condoms on zucchinis. We are doomed.

    Calvin, just add an O for masculine (desko) or an A for feminine (chaira). Not too hard to figure out.

    I said to a friend from France, “I suppose you don’t have spelling bees for French.” He replied, “No, we have gender bees instead.”

    English doesn’t really have gendered nouns, but that’s because we have gendered pronouns, I remember when I was trying to learn spanish there really wasn’t much in the way of pronouns.

    Gender also refers to electrical connectors.Plus, a round connector can have a shell of one gender and contacts of another.Plus, there is a (hermorph sp?) classification where two identical connectors can be mated!

    In Spanish, El Toro (m) means bull, so, logically, la tora should be a cow – but isn’t!

    Same with Spanish and Italian, and I see no real point in it. Why is a desk masculine and a chair feminine? Are they going to “love each other very much” and make little footstools?"
