I know in today's ultra-sensitive world it seems so easy to offend and that is not the meaning behind this post. I'm just more curious since the social rules change faster then I can keep up! I'm just wondering if it is sexist in today's world to refer to an object such as a bass guitar or car, etc. in the female sense. I have always said things about my bass like She plays like a dream. Same with my car...she runs like a beast. Like the engine...she sounds sweet! I am using it in a complimentary meaning. What do all of you think? Should I start saying things like It plays like a dream...it is really fast...it is a beauty? Can you tell I'm bored on this rainy Monday in Ohio? Ha!
