In my first language the two genders are “animate” and “inanimate” (or “likely to be moving” and “not typically moving”). Which, if you know any Cree Men, it might explain their general sexual tendencies.
Other languages will have differences in Genders.
For the most part that “male” and “female” gender in language is mostly just in SOME modern day languages with influence by Latin. Even then, you also have “Neuter”, “Agender” and “Indeterminal” as possible genders that can show in languages influenced by Latin.
First Nations languages do not operate on the “male/female” dynamic. Various African languages do not operate on those mechanics. Hell, various East Asian languages operate on a “dominant/submissive” dynamic. With it going even further that you speak about your own role (or views on your own role) rather than trying to guess the other person’s role.
Essentially, the whole Latin language’s requirement to explain what they think another person is suppose to be… mixed with people refusing to be corrected upon “what they think something should be” essentially creates a lot of weird modern day issues.
I mean… Cree does guess what they think another person is suppose to be… but it is mostly a “that should be moving right?” type mechanic.
