Is this movement catching on in languages that have grammatical gender?.

Edit: for an example

Example: Spanish

The English word "the" = Spanish "el" or "la" depending upon the arbitrary gender assigned to the noun.

  • The beach = la playa
  • The car = El coche

Also, the last vowel in a noun typically indicates the nouns gender...

Example: Roberto vs. Roberta.

Note: a couple of nouns are genderless, but these are exceptions.
