AU where Transformers are genderless but the Autobots all go by "she" on Earth because to their understanding, all vehicles and assorted machinery are referred to by female pronouns.
oh shit!!!! that would be so good. one of them looks up what pronouns to use for cars (expecting it/it’s) but finds a bunch of biz about referring to them as she/her so they’re like alright. That sounds fair.
They just do not understand why all these humans are so confused about Optimus when they met her, you know? Like what? She turns into a truck, that’s a her, right?? why is this “english” language so weird.
