The sine qua non of femininity, both be nom masculin while i can be persuaded of the logic that France is inherently feminine and deserves the definitive article вЂњlaвЂќ, and Canada is clearly a country brimming with Mounties and masculinity, hence вЂњleвЂќ Canada, in what world of undue complexity would the breast and the vagina?
