compsci teacher's making us store gender as an enum to prove we know how enums work so i decided to have fun with it

@keith Hey, male and female are perfectly good! I'm male and will not change that. >,,>

@IceWolf @keith But it’s not a gender—“man” is a gender. “Male” is a sex. :)

Further, if heated to its decomposition temperature, “woman” separates into at least two other genders, butch and femme. Since modern gender science has shown us that “woman” is not an elemental gender, we must also examine whether “man” is a compounded gender-substance. Thus far, indications for its unity are not promising.

@Verdigris @keith "male" is absolutely a gender for me!

... is this a trashpost? Because suddenly I'm feeling like I have to defend my gender. >,,<


@IceWolf @keith Yeah, that was a trashpost. Should’ve labeled it better.
