Filipino Spanish Bread Rolls; Bread Baking Babes — 4 Comments

  1. As always, it’s wonderful to see all the BBBabes’ breads together on one page.

    As for the question about why “bra” is masculine, that seems obvious to me. It is undoubtedly men who designed the uncomfortable things (and who so often seem intent on undoing them), so it’s fitting (no pun intended) that the name should be masculine. But I can think of no good reason for why “table” is feminine.

    • It really drives my crazy. When one is talking one can just kind of mumble the le / la and people hear what they expect to hear. Doesn’t work when one is writing – like in class lol

  2. ROFL, yes, I like not having masculine and feminine forms in English, though it would make learning other languages easier if we did I suppose! And yes Elizabeth, I imagine the over-the-shoulder-boulder-holder was definitely originally designed by a man. But any gender should love all our breads! Thanks for rounding them all together Katie.
