Zer0 from Borderlands 2 is not human… though he might also not be a similar style of robot to this guy here and X1 might not have read the lore and thus assumed he was just a weird human.

He’s certainly not presented as anything but human on the character select screen. And X1 doesn’t strike me as the “read all the lore of the game before playing it” sort of bot.

I’m not completely sure how visible it is on the character selection screen, but he actually only has 3 fingers and a thumb on each hand, not 4. And the lore that suggests he might not be human but maybe a robot, or something else, is actually from an audio log that you come across in-game, not any lore that’s available before starting it (unless you notice the fingers).

Considering “They” is a perfectly good and established pronoun for people with unknown gender, undefined gender or any gender outside of the binary spectrum, i’m pretty sure this is where we will end up.

Unless of course the robot (i’m not calling them Zeke yet) decided that their name will be their gender because let’s face it. They are unique anyway.

Lota is above puny pronouns.

-Schlock Mercenary, Book 10: The Longshoreman of the Apocalypse.

Lota is definitely an interesting example in which an AI chooses neither he, nor she, nor it, but instead insists upon their name being the only thing by which they are addressed. Lota however does make exceptions in which the pronouns in question refer to Lota as part of a more glorious whole, such as a group of friends.

I would argue that while Lota is obviously devoid of pronouns, after the events of Book 10 this is less showboating and more dependent on Lota’s grandiose role as the ruler – no, the pillar – of Credomar. Lota sees “Lota” as being representative of all the people of Credomar, and so does not merit pronouns in the same sense as the Royal “we”.

There are no such human beings with unknown gender…….. there are only 2 for humans. I gotta say it is frustrating to see someone take another form of entertainment and ruin it with left wing political propaganda but I guess in this case it is at least a product that is owned by one person and he can do as he wishes.

Your problem is assuming this is a political issue rather than a biological and psychological one. Whether or not you agree with peoples views of gender, by assuming someone is taking a political stance in the matter you are showing your ignorance on the matter as a whole. You can disagree with the issue and even have valid points about your disagreement but by claiming its “left-wing” shows that you do not consider the issue a “human” issue, which it is first and foremost.

I came here to write almost exactly that. I learned all this in high school science classes in a deep red state. The science is only up for discussion in the political realm, and it is infuriating that elected officials don’t have the knowledge or the will to research to get a better understanding of what is really going on.

Your claim there is only XX and XY has zero scientific merit. It has been in text books in deep red states for several decades, so its not new science created out of a desire to prop up ideologies.

The existence of living beings with xxx, xxy, xyy, just x, xxxx, and xxyy pretty much negates your entire binary argument.

So, please explain further the facts you base your argument on.

There aren’t even just two distinct sexes for humans — people are born with intersex characteristics all the time. Aside from that, assigned sexual characteristics can be distinct from gender — and just like Zeke (or whatever his new name ends up being) here, you get to choose what gender you wish the world to reference you as.

Dude, this is probably the most non-political, non-controversial expression of gender that you could actually come across, because it’s not about humans. You have an actual thing there that actually has no biological gender trying to figure out how it wants to identify itself, when the language itself infers that thinking beings are gendered.

If you can’t read this and at least put your own biases aside, it’s not the comic that’s at fault. You’ve got a chip on your shoulder you’ve got to overcome.

Your reply was completely off-base to Shinji’s point. Even by your own logic, you’re wrong. You stated that there are no people of unknown gender, which is not true. It happens all the time in language. If I say, “I have set this whoopee cushion down; when someone sits on it, it will sound like they farted,” it is correct to say ‘they’. It is incorrect to say ‘he’ ‘she’ or ‘it.’ This is not political leftist hogwash, it is actual English, and has been a part of the language since before Shakespeare’s time.

Which is stupid, as again, this is a non-biological being. Your arguments have zero merit. Would a human have the same exact conversation? No, because they have a jumping-off point.

Congratulations on also being wrong about science. Even in a restrictive world view sex (biology) and gender (cultural expectations) are not the same thing. There are a number of cultures world wide that have more than two genders. Even in the Western world Italy had a tradition of more than 2 through the 19th century.

German actually has the same issue with no genderneutral pronoun being present.
Considering that german pronouns are a huge clusterfuck anyway (seriously. The pronoun for “bus” is “he”, the pronoun for “cat” is “she” and the pronoun for “girl” is “it”) i think it will take a long time to find a solution there.

German is kinda funky in that “es/it” pronouns overlap with “er/he”‘s while formal “Sie/You/They” pronouns overlap with “sie/she”… and each other’s lol. The situation is kind of a mess, but at least the gendering in German feels pretty arbitrary? And at least being formal kind of opts out of gender completely. I think this kind of situation is part of why “they” has adopted a singular form in English (the first recorded case being all the way back around 1375 CE, which was Middle English), much like how “thou” as the singular form of “you” is now outdated.

Gender identity and names are very human concepts, so it wouldn’t surprise me if they don’t apply here. On the other hand, while “They” is a perfectly acceptable and established pronoun, it’s possible they do want to identify as either male or female, though it’s equally as likely that they will not. Perhaps, in the end, gender and name won’t apply because “those are human concepts and humans are gross” so they (for lack of a better way to refer to someone with no pronouns, at least that I know of) will simply choose not to have any and will… Read more »

Holup! Your gender is defined when you are born.

One does not CHOOSE his or her gender, it’s predefined on a genetic level. That also means it does not apply to the robot. It’s biological and thus irrelevant unless some parts of the robot contain living tissue that at one time belonged to a pre-existing creature. And then there is the… Read more »

You’re describing biological sex, not gender. Gender is the social and emotional aspect which is usually, but not definitively, linked to biological sex. It’s a social construct that has changed over time to encompass whatever we currently define as “masculine” or “feminine” which are not static concepts.

You are confusion gender with sex. (Though depending on your primary language, those two concepts might use the same word) Sex (the organs you have) is genetic, though it can be adjusted with surgery. Gender however is a social construct, partially based around sex, and indeed how you choose to identify. Considering many parents assign you a gender based entirely on your genitals immediately after birth, you may have to change that later on in life to reflect what your brain actually needs it to be.

It is a consciousness exploring the bounds of it’s existence beyond what it would normally consider.
