Why no le, la before nouns in flashcards?

Can we have le and la before nouns on the flashcards please to aid retention of whether nouns are feminine or masculine in French - for English speakers that is one of the hardest things to remember!

Maybe this is a secret way to force us to use the Tiny Cards app? I don't have the app (I don't have iOS) so I'm not sure if they have flashcards with genders on them.

For everyone! Not only English speakers, it is difficult for people of different native languages as well. Knowing genders in my own language, doesn't help. I have to learn it again for every language which I desire to master, because the genders are different for every language that genders uses.

Blah! Genders are not fun.

I agree that flashcards should include the gender.

However, there are also some general rules that help, which are explained at the Duolingo website early on in the tree under Animals.
