I didn’t write the following, but I do find it amusing (I don’t know who wrote it). Yes, it’s based on stereotypes, but there are some “that kinda rings true” statements. And, yes, it’s not very of-our-time; I mean, are all computers necessarily cisgender? Well, apparently, yes. I checked and it turns out all computers use “binary code” (rim shot). For now, at least. ~Mitch
Is your computer male or female? Ships are characterized as female (“Steady as she goes”). What about computers? A group of computer scientists—both male and female—were asked, and gave conflicting replies.
Computers are Female (according to Males) – How You Can Tell:
No one but their Creator understands their internal logic.
The language they use to communicate with other computers is incomprehensible to anyone else.
“Bad command or file name” = “If you don’t know why I’m mad at you, then I’m certainly not going to tell you.”
Even your smallest mistakes are stored in long-term memory for later retrieval.
You can do the same thing for years, and then suddenly it’s wrong.
They make you take the garbage out.
As soon as you make a commitment to one, you never stop buying it accessories.
Computers are Male (according to Females) – How You Can Tell:
They have a lot of data, but are still clueless.
They’re supposed to help you solve problems, but half the time they are the problem.
A better model is always just around the corner.
They look nice and shiny until you bring them home.
It’s always necessary to have a backup.
In order to get their attention, you have to turn them on.
They’ll do whatever you say if you push the right buttons.
