No, not really. Not really. I think one of the good thing about the language we use, which is Mandarin, but also in Taiwanese Hakka and Hoklo, it’s not a gendered language. Just by saying 你我他, there’s no gender in any of the pronouns. I think the "tā" with the "she" actually is an invented word, just a hundred or so years old, because they need to translate to Russian novels or something. [laughs]
