Basically, yes. But every noun has a gender, masculine, feminine or neuter, ever if most nouns don't describe living beings who have a gender. So you have for example:
der Löffel (masculine: the spoon)
die Gabel (feminine: the fork)
das Messer (neuter: the knife)
Since you usually can't tell the grammatical gender from the meaning of the noun, you need to learn the article with each noun.
It's not "considered", it's just their grammatical gender. It has nothing to do with human gender.
There are some hints, like nouns ending in -chen are always neuter and nouns ending in -ung, -heit or -keit are always feminine, but mostly you just have to learn the gender together with each vocable.
