Is a Computer a He or a She?

A pastor of a church who was previously a sailor, was very aware that ships are addressed as "she"; and "her." He often wondered what gender computers should be addressed. To answer that question, he set up two groups of computer experts. The first was comprised of women, and the second of men. Each group was asked to recommend whether computers should be referred to in the feminine gender, or the masculine gender. They were asked to give four reasons for their recommendation.

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

1. No one but the 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 paycheck on accessories for it.

    i thought this was a discussion not a joke lol.

    i was gonna say:

    Women of course...
    They multitask
    The good ones cost a lot
    You get one in good spirits, but then you spend more on them
    They dont always want to do what you want them to
    You eventually want to replace them

    I will have to disagree. My computer's memory is full of porn. type in any letter into the adress bar and a porn site come up. So you see i think computers are hes because there is always sex on my computers mind.

    A computer is asexual. A phone is male. An mp3 player is female. A flash drive can either be male, female, or asexual. A gaming console is male.
