I'm sorry Alex, but the idea that we shouldn't treat people differently because of their gender is, frankly, rather thoughtless. To do so is to refer to everybody by gender-neutral pronouns, to not address the fact that there are REAL PHYSICAL DIFFERENCES between men and women, and those are GOING to affect perception. disregarding a woman's gender as far as job applications or consideration for hiring is a desirable state for a society. Determining that a woman's gender makes her unfit for a function is wrong. Disregarding the fact that a woman who is, at the time, pregnant might be unfit for certain tasks in the name of gender equality is just foolish. Gender exists, sexes exist, and to refuse to recognize them is not helpful in the slightest, and on the same level as keeping your head in the sands.The fact remains that Ji essentially gave the same compliment to both characters after recognizing that he is male, and they are the sex they appear to be, which adjusted the wording of his compliment accordingly.
