    All the time. All of it.

    I really have to watch out so I don't genderize* things when I talk. I've done called trees "he", the sun "she"... quite often, really.


    *Shuddup, firefox, that's a word now.

    Interestingly, since I do all my writing in English, it also seeps back into my German. "Right?" or "Okay?" at the end of sentences is one. "Well..." as a filler word. "Nonsense", if I don't believe something.
