Is this movement catching on in languages that have grammatical gender?.
Edit: for an example
The English word "the" = Spanish "el" or "la" depending upon the arbitrary gender assigned to the noun.
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.
