Why is it Mother Earth and not Father Earth? Why is a ship a she and not a he?

Can you give more examples of similar phenomena?

  • This question is very similar, and I think that the implication in one of the answers that "Women carry life ergo things that carry life are female" covers both specific examples in this question. I'm afraid asking for a list of examples is too broad to be on topic (so I'm voting to close). – Pam Mar 8 '19 at 9:18
