Genders in languages

Does anyone try to put gender into nongendered languages? I do this all the time with English--and it's my first language. I have a French teacher for whom English is a second language, and she says that she tries to put in genders into English all the time. For some reason, I always seem to hear some nouns as feminine and some as masculine [for example, to me, the word "glass" is feminine]. Am I just weird, or do other people do this, too?
