Wowsers. That sounded suspiciously like a child. Suspect your generation is the one mine begot, and now regret.

Here is the point, rephrased: YOUR DATA TYPING WAS WRONG*.

Your students were quite a bit smarter than you. Note that I never onced referenced your ideas about gender. That bout of hysteria above is yours alone.

(Why it was wrong? You made an assumption based on personal experience and opinion. You cannot have missed that today people - regardless of YOUR opinion - want and need (see link you were given) more choices that fit in your typing. It's your kind of thinking that gave us two-digit years to suffer. Might have worked when you were a toddler, but poor practice today)
