% I was just reading through the Mysql manual section 3.32
% And came across a sentence that started like this
% Animal sex can be represented in a variety of ways
% My mother tongue is not English but doesn't it sound rude ? :-)
I get a giggle out of that whenever I read it, too :-)
I've heard various folks talk about how that has been changed in newer
versions of the manual. When you get down to it, though, it still talks
about animal sex. I'm surprised they don't either leave it like it is
because it doesn't really matter (and geeks such as I can make anything
funny) or change from 'sex' to 'gender' to make the subject unambiguously
