Germanic declensions remain easy nonetheless. »

This topic isn't about that.

It's about this question:
«But I wonder about other languages, especially those with more cases. Does the masculine noun still tend to undergo more changes? And if so, is this a sexist thing? lol »

There are some singular masculine nouns in Italian such as uovo (egg) dito (finger), labbro (lip) and so on, which turn into feminine in the plural, retaining the ancient neuter ending in -a like in indo-european and latin:

l'uovO - plural Le uovA
il ditO - plural Le ditA
il Labbro - le labbrA
