What gender is a computer?

"What gender is a computer?

The group of women concluded that computers should be referred to in the
masculine gender because:

1. In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.
2. They have a lot of data but are still clueless.
3. They are supposed to help you solve your 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 had a better model.


The men, on the other hand, decided that computers should definitely be
referred to in the feminine gender 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 your smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for later
retrieval.
4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending
half your pay check on accessories for it.

Wonder what percentage of lotto players are male vs female.
Demographically I think older people play it more.

Hi,
I thing computer would be female.
Five reasons to believe computers are female:
a.. No one but the Creator understands their internal logic b.. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else. c.. The message “Bad command or file name” is about as informative as, “If you don’t know why I’m mad at you, then I’m certainly not going to tell you”. d.. Even the smallest mistakes are stored in long term memory for later retrieval. e.. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheck on accessories for it.

Then maybe it should also be male because it does no work until its buttons are pushed. Confused

My computers have always been "it"
