Not just Czech. All Slavic languages (Russian, Ukrainian, Polish etc.;
circa ~500 millions of speakers) have clear distinction between
masculine, feminine and neuter genders.

Semitic languages tend to have distinction between masculine and
feminine even for pronouns like "I" and "you" are.

German has feminine/masculine distinction, as well (although not as
widespread as the languages above).
