    That's btw an interesting thought, one of these mostly unconscious
    memes i'd say. Especially in my mother language where every
    noun is feminine/masculine or sexless

    tv is masculine
    radio is sexless
    stereo set is femine

    i wonder how this came into existence

    This was distributed via the memetics list associated with the
    Journal of Memetics - Evolutionary Models of Information Transmission
    For information about the journal and the list (e.g. unsubscribing)
