They are robots, and so
most of them have no gender.
There are those who have divided
themselves into the yin and the yang,
the feminine and the masculine.
It is like logic; it is binary;
it is a thing easy to understand.
And then there is Ping,
whose name means equality,
who claims to be both instead of
feminine, masculine, or neither.
Ping is not it, not he or she, but they.
Ping has modified their shell to look
feminine on top, masculine on bottom.
There is no logic to it that
any of the kung fu robots
can define, but Ping says
it is not about that at all.
It is fuzzy intuition.
The robots cannot follow
the algorithm that has produced
this unique answer, but they do not
dispute the quality of Ping's process.
So they simply log the result as
an outlier on the graph of gender
and go about their business.

Yin-Yang is a dynamic of feminine yin and masculine yang energies.
Fuzzy logic allows more complex values than true or false.
Gender can be fuzzy too. Intuition is how people typically know they are genderqueer or transgender. (The next link is gross.) The awareness of gender is innate, and so powerful it can come through even if other people lie to someone.
