how i figured out gender is bullshit by the time i was 6:
growing up learning a heavily gendered language with a migrant mother speaking another heavily gendered language and getting into fights like "actually the sun is female in german" "that makes no sense, why would the sun be female? the sun is neutral!" "i don't know why the sun is female, but it is" "no! the sun cannot be female, just look at it!"

"why is bread not male in german" "i don't know, i didn't come up with this language" "it should be male, bread is male!"
