The distinction between sex and gender differentiates sex (the anatomy of an individual's reproductive system, and secondary sex characteristics) from gender (social roles based on the sex of the person, usually culturally learned), or personal identification of one's own gender based on an internal awareness (gender identity.
In some circumstances, an individual's assigned sex and gender do not align, and the result is sometimes a transgender person.
I guess I have to do this in a boolean form but I don't know how I'm going to do that. Another reason a boolean might be inappropriate is that in some countries it is illegal in some situations to require people to disclose their gender.
Stuff those ints into the array, and pass it on back. The caller won’t care, because the byte fits just fine into the int the caller will use for assigning the result. By forcing other code to go through setter methods.
I'm creating an Employee class containing three fields: name, age, and gender.
I need to create a gender field but the user can only choose male or female. This is a reason why an enum might be a better option.
Either is Male of is Female pick one you don't need both.
