Re: Oh man.

I agree. However, those electronics that don't recognise conventional genders will hate your sis-normative attitude and will find it offensive.

I personally believe there are only two cable genders and the gender neutral gadgets are confusing pin layout with signal type.

Doesn't matter if the cable is Mini-B, Micro-B or Thunderbolt. If its a male connector its male.

Gender describes the physical media, everything else is signal.

I mean, a Thunderbolt connector works both ways, but its still male. Just sayin.
