i was discussing the financial forecasts of the exxon oil company for the next few quarters with an academic. i was honoured that they even wanted my opinion as she is a very respected academic.

N.E wayz i reffered to the company as she. i think it was along the lines of "she should break XX dollars per share if oil prices rise to such and such"

this was met with anger and apparent disgust. i was informed that reeffering to a commpany or any object as a she is objectification of women and that she woldn't have expected such behaviour from me. i was basically flamed. it was only me and her talking so it wasn't exactly embarassing, but more of an eye opener. i don't think that reffering to cmpanies as she is sexist, am i wrong ?



for example when discussing WWII people always refer to soverign states as she. for example i've heard professors sayin that "russia held down much of the allied front, she was responsible for containing the germans etc..."



botom line is it sexist to refer to things as she ?

If someone feels as though something is sexist, and the explanation has even a small semblance of logic to it, then yes, it is sexist.

For some people, personifying an object by assigning a gender to it is equivalent to objectifying a person.

Sounds like it has a semblance of logic to it, and since someone was offended by it, 'tis sexist.

Well, I wouldn't go that far, but she more than likely does have an anger control issue. Nothing a good dicking wouldn't solve, of course.

Everyone has their sensitive issues. If the lady in question was truly offended then she had every right to say something. If none of you have ever been offended over something said in a conversation or someone's personal view point I applaud you.

Apples and oranges folks... but I mean shove your dick in the mouth that likes apples, right?

One time, I had to memorize the 12 cranial nerves, and the thing we used to remember them in order was the following:

"Oh, oh, oh, to touch and feel Veronica's glistening vulva and hymen."
