Male or female

As a French teacher its not always easy to teach the difference between feminine and masculine. Everything has a gender: la table, le téléphone, etc...It can be hard for kids to memorize. There are still a few things that still challenge me. I still cant say if the following are  are male or female.  Here`s what a male friend of mine says:

FREEZER BAGS
:
They are male, because they hold everything in, but you can see right through them.

PHOTOCOPIERS
:
These are female, because once turned off; it takes a while to warm them up again. They are an effective reproductive device if the right buttons are pushed, but can also wreak havoc if you push the wrong Buttons.

 

TIRES
:
Tires are male, because they go bald easily and are often over inflated

HOT AIR BALLOONS
:
Also a male object, because to get them to go anywhere, you have to light a fire under their butt.

SPONGES
:
These are female, because they are soft, squeezable and retain water.
 

WEB PAGES
:
Female, because they're constantly being looked at and frequently getting hit on.

TRAINS
:
Definitely male, because they always use the same old lines for picking up people..

EGG TIMERS
:

Egg timers are female because, over time, all the weight shifts to the bottom.
 
Hammer Pictures, Images and Photos

HAMMERS
:
Male, because in the last 5000 years, they've hardly changed at all, and are occasionally handy to have around.
 
Remote Control Pictures, Images and Photos


THE REMOTE CONTROL
:
Female. Ha! You probably thought it wouldbe male, but consider this: It easily gives a man pleasure, he'd be lost without it, and while he doesn't always know which buttons to push, he just keeps trying

  4. Very entertaining, though I would think some of those nouns would have a gender eg train, hammer.

  5. French is a bit like Spanish in the gender distinction...Feminine words end in A and Male words in O...I'll have to try my hand at these words with a Spanish accent! Very entertaining and fun read for the Letter F.

  23. What an amazing pumpkin-artist!
    I am not sure wear your f-post is. F is for Female? Right. You are a teacher of the French language. Very funny post. There is no rhyme or reason behind the grammatical asignment of gender to words. But I love these wimsical explanations.
    Great post!
    Best wishes,
    Anna

    P.S.
    Don't you usually post on the French Obsession too? Then I'll see you there tomorrow!
