Greek has three grammatical genders: masculine, feminine, neuter.
So does German.
French has two, but masculine takes precedence.
Flemish - now this has always been too much for me - it's got either two or three, depending.
English has "he and she, "him and her" " for things that have clear genders - people, and animals that you know quite well. But for all other things it just uses "it". It's heading towards having no genders, though it's never gonna get there.
Can you imagine a language which uses "the" as a definite article, has "it" for all genders, and distinguishes between male and female parents by calling them "parent", and "who happens to be male/female" only if there happens to be a need to distinguish?
Yes, I can, too.
