More In depthEdit

Should we go more in depth with this page? perhaps split it in to three individual pages. it just seemed that a single page for all the genders didn't sit right - Captain majors

  • I agree with you captain. but I think maybe male female and double gendered maybeDarth Hurricane 04:43, 8 July 2007 (UTC)
  • yes, I agree more depth is needed on this page. Perhaps we could say something like, "in many species, such as humans, x, and y, males and females are easily distinguishable by their clothing, hair, and body shape, and are socialized to behave differently from an early age. In other species such as x, y, and z, males and females do not exhibit markedly different behavior, and can be difficult to tell apart." 02:25, 19 April 2008 (UTC)
    • The most I can think of being done with discussing genders and not going into the nitty-gritty crack-open-that-anatomy-and-physiology-book territory would be a section describing the generalized sexual dimorphism between males and females (at most breasts, build, and the pelvic structure). I'm willing to write up a vague section about that if there are no objections. Trak Nar 02:31, 19 April 2008 (UTC)

Some heckling from the peanut gallery, I'm afraid: this article really needs to distinguish between sex and gender. The two terms are not synonymous.

so why dont you define them for us mr. gallery? diobern 12:55, 24 March 2009 (UTC)

I know this is an old conversation but gender roles are pretty intresting so a definition of sex and gender is in order. Sex is "the properties that distinguish organisms on the basis of their reproductive roles". Sex is a strict biological definition. Gender surrounds cultural ideals of an abstract concept of self identified gender. For instance I have many freinds who consider themselves "gender neutral". Although by the definition of sex they are strictly male or female they chose to identify as a gender outside of sex. Ill fit some accuracy into this but those seemed worthy statements to make in a talk page. Do you guys think we should define gender and sex on the page? --Drfaustxxx 16:16, February 5, 2011 (UTC)

And has this been adressed in-universe? I am not aware of the existence of any gay, transgender, etc. people in the Star Wars universe. The real world cannot be directly applied to Star Wars by a fan. We can't just assume that everything in the real world holds true in the Star Wars universe.

Droid gender Edit

I would like some further clarification of the guidelines on when you can define a droid's "gender programming". Is it only humanoid droids that speak with a gendered voice? Is it once another character refers to a droid by a gender that it's official? When a droid refers to another droid by a gender that it's official? Are there guidelines like "all astromech droids are male, all ships are female"? The issue came up on T3-M4's page as he was listed "masculine programming" despite having very few gender pointers. I think it'd be good to hash out some guidelines for determining when a droid officially has gendered programming. // fodigg BlackRebelStarbird 18:54, 20 May 2009 (UTC)


Does this only count the places the types of genders are said? If not everything has sexes in it. Matt Seay (talk) 11:23, August 17, 2012 (UTC)
