I thought it was about time we had a new poll, so....
I voted neither. I need to own her eerr... it, a little longer before I will know.
Never had a male car. All cars are female
him!! My boyfriend wont accept that my copen WILL be a boy
Mine's a girl
Don't ask me how I know, but my little Copen is a little lady called Sherbert. She fizzes along the motorway, makes me smile and feel all bubbly. She's an airhead, beautiful and quirky. How can she be anything other than female. And before anybody takes offence, she's driven by a woman too!
Female with round thingsIn my universe thats perfectly acceptable.
Bor or Girl
Cheeky little boy for sure.
I agree. oh, got to make reply longer!
A sexy one too.
Mine's a boy, Al short for Al Capone it's just a play on words Copen Capone
We call ours Noddy, so I presume he's male. Sad I know, but the gender of our new toy really depends on the exact nature of a cartoon/childern character.
Not too sure there matey. A car is bi, my copen is a hottie in disguise, it's cool and sexy to drive. (female), It's also mean and aggressive when it needs to be, (male).
neither - it is a car - the beauty of english language we dont assign genders on objects.
i know - such a killjoy!
Copencat you are of course quite right that English doesn't assign genders. Polish and French do though and in both cases "car" is masculine not sure about other languages - anyone know more? Being a mere male and looking at the cute, small curvy Copen in my garage which will take its top off whenever I demand, it's very difficult to think of it as anything other than feminine. But maybe I'm just an old sexist dinosaur!
I always used to confuse my French teacher by asking if I had a pet which was female gender in French, but is a male, should you refer to it as male and female.
people infantilise pets which in my opinion is much worse, knew of someone who used to lay a place at the table for their dog....
Definitely male, the only time a woman moves quickly is when they're shopping in the sales.
I've never really thought of inanimate objects as gender specific. So mine's a pre-op transsexual, probably male but not sure.
I wonder why ships are always female as in "God bless all who sail in her."
Nobody ever refers to the sex of a train though.
I saw you had put a reply on this thread. As I was scrolling down thinking of the topic I thought hmmm, my car is a hermaphrodite. Then saw what you had put and thought we have the same taste how ever perverted it is
So you've not removed the exhaust then!
