In French, 'blond' is masculine and 'blonde' is feminine. I always easter-lol to myself when I see "blonde man" because it sounds like he is wearing a Hannah Montana wig or flowers in his hair or something.

And then when I see a man talk about his 'fiancé' or a woman talk about her 'fiancée', I go like  blink for a second because I saw the engagement photos, and they are marrying someone of the opposite sex.

^^ That's still the rule in English too (taking after the French), it's just ignored by most English speakers it seems... Like many a grammar rule!!
