Finland is a nordic country located east of Sweden. The parliamentary republic’s official language is Finnish, though Swedish is also spoken in the country. Finnish does not have masculine or feminine words. His, her, she and he all do not exist. If someone was telling a story and said, “She was visiting CoochCoach.com,” those listening would not know if someone was referring to a man or a woman, unless a name was used. Linguistically speaking, men and women are equal.
