I see you miss my point so completely as to go off on another plane and seemingly take offense. My objection is in elevating mere mechanical objects to a human level.

I suggest in return you look up "gender" and see what the definition is. And I'm talking about English, not foreign languages where all nouns have gender. This is different than loving referring to your vehicle as "my darling Penelope, she acts up today. I may have to stroke her lovingly whilst I ignore my family"

Given those two examples, perhaps you'll come to see that gender and name assignment to objects is actually the norm and not oddball.
At the very least you could expand your understanding of gender beyond "has balls" and "doesn't have balls".

It would have been helpful to be more specific in your original post.

I didn't pick up anything in there about elevating items to a human level.
I only picked up on the name/gender assignment.

It's okay by me if you find the practice of naming objects, or assigning gender to objects, to be immature. I even asked my Jeep 'Po' about it and he didn't seem upset in the least - he beeped twice and indicated that he'd like to take a drive in the country this weekend.

He's rowdy that way.

Your point wasnt missed nor was it taken offensively. We just disagree. My contention is that my mere Jeep is worthy of a name if for no other reason than to distinguish it as mine and elevate it above the sheeple with whom I normally have to interact. Some of those have yet to achieve human level on the evolutionary chart.

In a nutshell: in a society where common courtesy and selfless attitudes are rapidly vanishing, naming and venerating inanimate objects above people is just furthering the decline, and I take a small degree of joy in pointing out misanthropic attitudes where I see them (here I am talking in general, not at you specifically)

I agree that materialism is a real problem.
That said, you hurt my Jeep's feelings and I demand an apology.

I agree. So, in a society so filled with selfish, hateful, egotistical people hell-bent on crushing liberty, dreams and ideas and promoting conformity and submission, me and Big Bird exist to negate entire lives of Prius and Leaf drivers. Shes reliably comfortable and soothing. My favorite therapist, better than any psychologist. My partner in crime. She more than deserves a name.

Airmed ~In Irish mythology, the goddess Airmed was one who healed those injured in the Second Battle of Magh Tuiredh.
My jeep was built as personal healing tool and to honor those KIA with 2-162 infantry in 2004 rotation.

i dont see a problem naming our jeeps. people who prefer bothering other fellow jeepers instead of going out and wheeling with their buddies (in case they have) are just a waste of time.
