I think I’ve missed an important memo ….

I’ve just been amending a contract and came across the following clause which sparked my interest:

 

words importing any gender include every gender ….” [Emphasis added]

 

Such a clause would normally simply refer to “… both genders ..”.

 

Does this mean that there are now officially more than two genders, or is this just future-proofing?

 

I’ve got to admit, I’m more than a little confused – have I missed a memo??!!

 

I will happily embrace a multitude of genders – probably literally as well as figuratively – but I just need to know how many there are; my male – I assume male is still an official gender (?!) – brain finds it difficult to cope with uncertainty!!
