There is a discussion that periodically comes up, in various forms, at my primary My Little Pony thread. Every so often we get to discussing what is a masculine or feminine trait or activity, and what that does or should mean.

Today, it occurred to me to wonder how that discussion would be different if the people involved were speaking a language with gendered nouns. Arabic, Latin, German, French, Spanish - all the other languages I've studied or had significant exposure to use two or three genders, but not English. And I wonder how that affects this kind of discussion.
