If corporations are people, how do we determine their gender?

So we can prevent same-sex corporate mergers? Why isn't the GOP doing something about this?

Could we somehow use the name of corporation (John Deer is male, Amazon is female), or base it on their best selling products? But what if the parent company makes both locomotives and bras? We certainly couldn't use the French noun gender as a guide, because well... that would be "French".

Suggestions?

1. Hey, that is easy

Corporations are people and they are hermaphrodites - according to Mitt Rmoney! That's the only concession he will allow to the lefty-left on the issue.

6. I suppose they will have to legalize corporate polygamy

If the gender ratio is too far out of balance.

8. Considering they want someone else to go fight their wars

you could probably say they are all pu****s too.

but as a woman I dislike that word and quite frankly don't want to claim The Corporation in my gender.

The GOP Bible specifically says - it's Adam Inc. and Eve Co., not Adam Inc. and Steve Co.

Adam Inc and Steve Co can have aquisition, but not traditional merger.

4. I guess they are women

since they have other people inside of them. That was Romney's rational that corporations are people, that they are full of people working inside them. So I guess that makes them pregnant females...each and every one...doesn't it?
