Vocaloid fans and Twitter users had a heated discussion on what pronoun we should use for VOCALOID.

The Twitter user insisted using “she” to refer to VOCALOID, but his teacher kept correcting him to use “it” instead. The below are what other Twitter users think.

There are various opinions such as “Machine can be treated as female. The VOCALOID has a character such as Miku Hatsune, then “she” should be used.”, “Female pronoun can be used for cruisers and yachts”, “VOCALOID is a thing, so should it be “it”?”, etc.

Do you think VOCALOID should be referred to as “it” or “she”?
