Do you assign a gender to non-gender objects?

Does your car become "The good girl"..or the BAD girl *giggles*

Do you catch yourself admiring a motorcycle and saying.."Yeah, look at that boy over there.."
For the most part, I have heard this applied to cars, trucks, motorcycles and boats..
Some even go as far as to give them names!
So do you do this, or do you know someone who does this? Not just with vehicles but with anything.

oh yeah, I do it for sure. My computer's name is "Tigger" because it has a tendency to defy a law of physics. Namely Causality. "B" does not necessarily follow "A" in this computers case. Sometimes it'll jump straight to "R". Not sure why, but it'll do that. Come to think of it I've always named computers. Cars are typically "Baby" as in "C'mon Baby! I gotta get to work!". When upset the name gets dropped concerning a device. "why you $^#$!".

My car often gets refered to as an 'f-ing b*st*rd' when it miss-behaves, but I am never gender specific in my abuse

So true,

I seem to feminise large objects, I.e. planes, ships etc, and smaller objects masculine, I.e. cars, computers etc.

Look at that bad boy (I.e. new laptop etc); and, she's something else, isn't she, or she's a 'big girl' for a large plane or cruise liner, and so on.

(I hope there are no sex psychologists in the house tonight)!

Other than that, I am a totally sane, rational and sensible individual.

I do because it makes me more comfortable for some reason. My lap top is a girl and I named it SERPENT. Weird, eh? I also view my car as a female. I see trees as males. I have no idea why.

At first I thought you were talking about the Spanish Language. I don't assign gender to non gender items, but I do catch myself calling my vehicle "The Beast"!

I don't think that is very gender specific!
