Fluid, it's gender fluid
It's a she. Easy We say "une machine à laver" "Un machine à laver" would make no sense !
Easy, doing the laundry is a female work => UNE machine à laver ...
Le washing machine
That seems obvious...
We only have "le" ou "la", for pronouns when germans have "Der" "die" and "das"... But ok
Easy trick: leaen german first and just take the opposite of the german gender. It's mostly correct.
Laughs in german. Bus is male, bus stop is female and bus ticket is neuter. There are hundreds of stupid examples that doesn´t make any sense. In german language "Das Bus" just sounds stupid. "Der Bus" sounds way better.
It's neolatin culture. Everything is fuckable.
