"her" or "she"?

Like a grocery bag? Or a purse? One of those totes you get when you buy $35 worth of Clinique? I need more information.

Never heard anyone do this. If I did then yes I would find it very weird.

Is it a typo? Do you mean bats? Perhaps a Halloween observation.

Are that probably all people who speak a language that has gendered nouns? Do they do it only with bags?
In German a bag is female "die Tasche". I don't do that much anymore, I have been in English-speaking countries for a long time now, but I still call all cats "she" even if I know it's a male cat (die Katze) and all dogs "he" (der Hund). I get told off by the dc for it.

My cousin’s dh refers to her Louis Vuitton as the other woman as she spends more time maintaining that bag than with him apparently. Is that what you mean?

Handbag, do you mean? No. Can’t say I’ve ever heard a handbag referred to suchconfused

Some bags have names. I sometimes call mine by their names but only in a tongue in cheek sort of way.

And....... the OP's gone.

Yeah, there's these websites of bag lovers (PurseForum, TheBagForum, etc) and they call bags as "her" or "she".

For example, I bought this insert name of bag yesterday and she's very beautiful.

I think I'd probably just stay off forums that exist solely to talk about bags. How fucking dull!
