I added English "shortcut" aliases to these two properties because they will be so widely used, and because searching for "male" and "female" in English gives numerous inaccurate results before the correct ones. I expect a purist to object, but anyway. The aliases are, for females, "sf" (sex female), and "sg" (sex male/"guy")--chosen only to be entered with the left hand easily.

Espeso, Good idea in principle but sf could mean so many other things, that this alias seems a little too general, probably best not to add such general aliases, there are plenty of tools for quickly adding gender to items

Today some idiot changed the English label to "male". I reverted that. Could vandalism like this be prevented? --FA2010 (talk) 14:33, 6 August 2013 (UTC)

Let's not merge this without prior discussion[edit]

As this is used on thousands of items for P27, could we avoid merging this into some other itme? --- Jura 21:31, 2 December 2014 (UTC)

@Дагиров Умар: такая конструкция как выяснилось имеет неприятный эффект, она перестаёт работать, если именяется метка элемента Q6581072. Приходится потом синхронизировать метки. По-хорошему вместо #property:P21 нужно сделать функцию на LUA, которая всегда возвращает Q-ключ вместо метки и сравнивать ключи, а не метки, тогда всё будет работать стабильно и не будет зависеть от изменения метки на Викиданных. — Ivan A.

@Ivan A. Krestinin: изменил здесь и здесь больше метку трогать никто не должен. К сожалению делать функции я не умею правда я на днях обновил модули на LUA. -- Дагиров Умар (talk) 23:30, 6 March 2015 (UTC)

character that may be fictional (Q21070598)[edit]

female (Q6581072): "human who is female". Mary Magdalene (Q63070), Eve (Q830183), etc., is "human (Q5) who is female (Q6581072)"? religious character (Q18563354) is "human (Q5) who is ..."? human biblical figure (Q20643955) is "human (Q5)"? --Fractaler (talk) 07:27, 5 January 2018 (UTC)
