Are Computers Male Or Female?

A group of men and a group of women were given a piece of paper and a pencil and asked to write down what gender they thought a computer might be, including four arguments to back up their reasoning.

The men’s group decided that computers were female and wrote:

  1. No one but their creator understands their internal logic
  2. The native language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to everyone else
  3. Even the 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

The women’s group decided that computers must be male and wrote:

  1. In order to do anything with them, you have to turn them on
  2. They have a lot of data but still can’t think for themselves
  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 gotten a better model…

The women won!!!!
