I've read in a calvin and hobbes comic that kids in english speaking languages countries never learn the gender of nouns. Is it true ?

So you dont know that tables and chair are females while a diner is a male ?

A car is a female, but his motor is a male.
(Linguist are sexist !)

A bird in the sky is a male, even if it's a migrant goose, who is female.

Everything on a plane is plane, except the wings. (linguist can be also poets sometimes.)

But last of the least :

A vagina is male. A cock, female ! (but a penis is male and a pussy female !)...

Cool, no ?
