    I'd imagine it makes Chua high schools rather awkward. Or maybe just that much simpler.

    I'm fine with this, in fact I like the gender-neutral bodies. He also said that there will be plenty of feminine options so you can make one that looks like a female, even if they are technically genderless.

    Well I'm semi glad that is no longer up I. The air, but it is sad from a role players perspective. Lore does state that they have gender, just hard to tell for non chua. But we will know.

    Retconning, a story developers favorite tool since forever.

    Not nessisarily a retcon. What they could mean by genderless is that there is one character creation option. There could easily still be male and female Chua in lore still. Horizons did the same thing. One creation option for dragons, but there were males and females in lore. It was just up to the player to decide which they wanted.

    Well, from the lore that we've been given, there are DEFINITELY female and male chua, you just can't really tell the difference. As I've talked about before, it's similar to gerbil's gender. They look quite androgynous. You really, really have to look and know what you're looking for to tell. And what person would want to be that close to a chua? They'd be liable to blow them up!

    And a chua would likely be able to tell because the female may emit different pheromones.

    Many years ago though, World of Warcraft introduced the Blood elves. They allowed you to choose whether you were male or female, even though they looked exactly the same!

    (Hint: old joke is old)

    I actually never played Wow, though I do remember the joke being that they were rather androgynous. :p

    Knew this would happen, someone would dig up something somewhere. But unless my memory fails me it's one dressed up as one and not actually a female gremlin.

    She's a transsexual Gremlin. Not a crossdresser.

    In the same laboratory where the gremlins drink the Veggie-Genetic material and get injected with lightning or slurp up IQ-boosting potions: She picks up a hormonal-change which results in a complete gender change. Her body undergoes major changes that give her a sex. No gremlin has breasts or hair until her. She even gets married to and has sex with a human male character (played by the holographic Doctor from Voyager).

    It's played for laughs which is a real shame, but she's also the least violent/destructive Gremlin. And the only one to survive either movie.

    I believe what they mean is that Chua are not sexually dimorphic; they have two sexes, but no specific gender.

    From an RP perspective it seems like this just leaves a lot of room for self identification. For the most part, the things that we consider 'male' and 'female' are cultural. Don't get me wrong, I understand biological differences and reproduction. With the Chua we have a chance to consider the social constructs of gender though. Is female long hair, eyelashes, certain colors or mannerisms? Much like the blood elf joke listed previously (in which all of them appear to be 'female' because of feminine characteristics) the genderless look of the chua allows you to truly determine 'what' they are, or remain truly 'genderless'. Since biology doesn't matter in the context of the game, how will the Chua players decide what they are, or will they at all? ;)
