waxjism: It's Finnish that doesn't have gendered pronouns (all people are hän). Swedish has "han" and "hon".1
That said, that magical language quirk has not stopped gender essentialism from hanging around like a bad smell. Sweden is working much harder on that shit.
Finnish doesn't have gendered pronouns but it has exercises like this one I had to participate in last Thursday meant to practice the approximately 1002 different forms of the plural partitive (one of several types of objective) case: 'What are women like, and what are men like?' (The point is to make a list of adjectives in plural partitive form.)
CLASSMATE: Women are beautiful! Men are handsome!3
CLASSMATE: Women are short!
OTHER CLASSMATE: No they're not!
ME: Women are adult people.
CLASSMATE: Oh, you mean 'adulter'! Women are adulter than men!
ME: No, I don't mean that. That is not true. Men are also adult people.
CLASSMATE: Right, not all, just most women. Men are more childish!
ME: No, I don't mean that. That is not true. But! Women ARE paid less money for the same work.
TEACHER: That's true! The 'women's euro' - 80 cents. [...] Right then, what are men like?
CLASSMATES: Strong! Tall! Funny? Handsome.
ME: They're more violent, especially towards their own wives, than women are, and also in Finland, they're more violent towards their wives than in many other European countries.
CLASSMATE: I don't think so!
ME: Yes, they are.
TEACHER: Is that true, did you read it somewhere?
ME: Yes, in a sociology course at the university, 'Gender and Sexuality in the Nordic Countries.'
TEACHER: Oh I see! Actually, that makes sense: I remember that there was a lot of domestic violence in Finland when I was a child.
CLASSMATE: Probably the explanation for what you read was that nowadays Finland has many immigrants from different countries, like Africa, but the police statistics can't say which group is which.
ME: No, that's not true. They can say. It's Finnish men.
TEACHER: Yeah, it wouldn't be new immigrants; it's Finnish culture. Because I remember it was already the case a long time ago, when I was young.
ME: Finns are more depressed too.
So basically I'm the one that's always killing the mood with angry feminist opinions.
TEACHER: What doesn't a little girl need?
ME: Over 100 pink toys.
