Someone made an AI that predicted gender from email addresses, usernames. It went about as well as expected

Lee,

You are writing nonsense.

Sex is binary, there is no third sex and you can't change sex either. XX males and XY females are not possible.

"Biologically intersex" is a nonsensical term. The preferred term is Difference in Sex Developments (DSDs) as this is the medical condition they have. The vast majority have a clearly defined sex and the very tiny % with an ambiguous sex that may undergo surgery or choose the sex with which they want to present.

Gender is the social interpretation of sex, with harmful stereotypes that state that men must behave certain ways and do certain jobs, and women do others. Not everyone acknowledges they have a gender and a little less categorisation would help us all.

Please stop repeating half-arsed tales you have read and check the facts.
