Is this becoming obsolete in actual practice, like in English?
This question relates to:French lesson "Job titles differ depending on whether you're a man or a woman (nouns)"

Not at all, quite the contrary. French is moving toward creating feminine forms for nouns that are currently masculine only, such as un pompier, which now has a feminine counterpart une pompière. There's some debate about whether this is necessary / desirable, but it's certainly not going obsolete.
