I was rewatching Pacific Rim and noticed something

All the Jagers (specifically Gypsy Danger) are referred to as “she.” These giant classically masculine asskicking robots are referred to with feminine pronouns by their pilots

I thought that was kinda sweet

This is actually a general thing. No idea why, but most mechanical things (notably ships) are referred to as ‘she’.
