People Expose The Sexist Assumptions Google Translate Makes

Many languages are gendered, so it's very difficult to be neutral when it comes to translating from English. The default is often male and this can lead to a lot of confusion, and assumptions when learning a new language. However, what people are discovering is that even with languages that are 'un-gendered,' like Finnish, Philipino, and Hungarian, Google Translate will still make certain assumptions about the pronouns.

Many people are very frustrated with how their language is appearing, and how sexist it appears on Google Translate and they're showing off the inconsistencies on Twitter.
