    Opposite or same sex? Handsome or Fugly? If fugly, how many bags on the scale from 1 to 3?

    (1 bag = you put a bag on your head not to be sick when you're about to make love, 2 bags if you put a bag on your own and on his/her head, 3 bags when you put bags on your head, his head and on the head of your dog so that it doesn't die laughing out loud and 1 flag - you just wrap it around the two of you and do it for the betterment of your motherland)

    I've been used to people saying that to me, both male and female and I always politely thank them ;]

    summed it perfectly Vulpes it is a very negative word, but I suppose some people take it lightly?

    Rather backhanded for a compliment, considering the severely negative connotations of the phrase.
    (Which is much of why we censored that particular word about a year ago.)
    Unless it came from someone I was in a relationship with, the person making the comment would likely catch hell from me.

    It seems a bit creepy to be a compliment.

    Indeed.
    Gender isn't determined until the first 3 months or so of pregnancy?

    It's actually more common then you think. If a girl told that to a guy, he'd be flattered. If a girl told that to a girl, she's be like "hey, wtf?" but not exactly offended, but if a guy told that to either, mayse, tazers and punches follow.

    Gender is determined via a long and complicated process of growing up, you mean biological sex, which is pretty much predestined the moment the new D.N.A helix is created.

    ...although even that is arguable, apparently. What a world, what a world.
    I personally vouch for naming it Suprise Sex.

    Yeah, I know it's common. Way too common. I think it's a mix of Double Standards, and homophobia.

    Absolutely, too many people take it far too lightly.
    I personally blame popular FPS games with voice chat allowing ten year olds to act like King Douchebags with impunity.

    If some guy said that to me he'd have a broken nose not long after.

    A woman wouldn't have a broken nose but I certainly wouldn't stand for it either.

    Visible genitalia are being created according to the combination of X and Y chromosomes. The only instance of disfigurment may appear when the chromosomes are formed in an erronous way, casuing hermaphroditism, among others... but I digress. Point being, when the first helix is created, there ain't no turning back anymore - it's either XX or XY (...or the previously mentioned erronous combinations).
