Nice find!
They can sometimes be weird, but Penguins are so ko0L! ;)

On another somewhat related note, for some reason some languages like Russian, French, etc. felt the need somewhere in history to assign a female/male attribute to almost everything. Also, a lot (most?) every Russian male attributes are female in French and vice versa.

In french, a chair for example is female but a desk is male. (Why? erm... well... look a bird. *runs aways* )
An Operating system is male but an installation is female.
In english at least they came out with "it" and prevented the whole male/female fiasco. ;)

Bonus : A boat is male, an automobile is female, a plane is male and a vehicule is male.
French also has a bunch of accents on letter like ,,,etc.
English is easier. ;)

Spanish too uses genders to talk about male or female for most nouns. This is an interesting article on that topic https://k-international.com/blog/why-do-languages-have-gender/

Yeah, English a lot way easier than French or Spanish, not only because of that, but verbs conjugations are easier to learn since they don't have many of those, i.e. I do, you do, they do, he does, she does. In Spanish, yo hago, tu haces, ellos hacen, el hace, ella hace. In French, Je fais, tu fais, ils/elles font, il/elle fait. Spanish and French have 7 while English only 2. I had a hard time learning French verbs in the University, but English ones were easy enough.
Without each others help there ain't no hope for us :)

Somebody long ago decided these things, and if there was a mythical woman dominated culture where all the scholars were women things might be different, but they would still be just as confusing in our written languages. German is a wonderful language to write in, Latin is like building a train and then making it move with the caboose, and while English is seemingly the most complex and unpredictable it simply sets a standard for modern scientific discourse that no other language can approach, largely because of a larger vocabulary that is ever changing with the progress of science, and an unprecedented adaptive praxis concerning grammatical constraints. Furthermore bias can be masked in the grammar of older languages, while English is perhaps the most forthright concerning expressions of hatred.
