Are Computers Men or Women?


As internet marketers, we spend a lot of time staring at, coaxing, pleading with our computer.  And I saw this joke on line and thought it was funny.

We all need to take a little bit of time for humor.  So, I thought I would post this and make a survey, as most people have an opinion.  So please read the joke, and then state your opinion.  You just need to click a button and hit submit.  It will ask you for an email, but you don’t need to send that to participate.  We will post the result in 1 week on Saturday, May1st.  Happy surveying.

Are Computers Men or Women?

A language teacher was explaining to her class that in French, nouns unlike their English counterparts, are grammatically designated as masculine or feminine.

“House” in French, is feminine -“la maison,” “Pencil” in French, is masculine “le crayon.”

One puzzled student asked, “What gender is computer?” The teacher did not know, and the word was not in her French dictionary.

So for fun she split the class into two groups appropriately enough, by gender and asked them to decide whether “computer” should be a masculine or a feminine noun.

Both groups were required 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 possible later review
  4. As soon as you make a commitment to one, you find yourself spending half your paycheque 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 realise that if you had waited a little longer you could have gotten a better model.

Here is where you get to vote.   Come on World, let’s see what the opinion is?  Don’t forget the submit button.

This post is just for fun.  To my best knowledge, the Joke is free to the public.
