Currently, if you hover over a word in a different language, in my case, German, it will tell you the gender of the word. However, if you're trying to construct a sentence from English and you hover over the English word for help, it does not tell you the gender of the word. I feel like it would be extremely helpful if they added it there as well.
Yes, it's a huge oversight and people have requested a change for a long time. I assume it must be difficult to fix at a programming level, or they would've taken care of it long ago.
