AverageAmericanGuy: I don't particularly like how they use the gender-neutral pronoun 'it' to refer to Kiri. Kiri may not be classifiable as a he or a she, but certainly Kiri must be considered something other than the dechimpizing term 'it'.
Candygram for Mongo: That's just plain bananas./sorry
No Such Agency: AverageAmericanGuy:I don't particularly like how they use the gender-neutral pronoun 'it' to refer to Kiri. Kiri may not be classifiable as a he or a she, but certainly Kiri must be considered something other than the dechimpizing term 'it'.For serious, as much as I think chimps are bloodthirsty monsters who are best avoided at all costs... they are great apes and therefore practically human. Certainly they're sentient beings. So there ARE biomedical ethics issues at play here. Why operate to "reassign" the chimp's sex, unless being intersexed is unhealthy or distressing for the animal?
Dracolich: "Hey guys, we made up classifications for things that generally work. This thing doesn't fit into those classifications. Rather than expanding our classifications, let's just take a knife to it."
AbbeySomeone: Sex assignment is what subby did to graduate high school. The proper term is gender reassignment.
