Here's the actual letter.I think it's actually quite tame, but make of it what you will....
In defending Nicky Campbell’s objecting to the misuse of the word “gender”, James Hobro quotes the neuter girl in German. These examples are more startling:
German, Latin and French have words for “watchman” which are feminine: in Latin the word “hired thug” is also feminine; the ordinary Latin Words for the male and female organs are feminine and masculine respectively.
(If you want the details: die Wache, la sentinelle, custodia; opera ; mentula, cunnus)
