master Bawan’s office: ^{*} Some observations by the Editor:- This means that every binary number has both sex chromosomes, except for numbers of the form (2^n)-1 where n >= 0.
- It also means that bitwise complement (~) is the Sex-Change Operation.
- It would be natural to assign gender to binary integers as follows: even numbers (ending in 0) are female, and odd numbers (ending in 1) are male. But speaking personally, I would find it disconcerting if someone referred to the anatomical feature that defines my sexuality as my Least Significant Bit.
