The other day I learned the words for male/female are "macho"/"hembra."
The words for man and woman are hombre/mujer.
The problem with this is that the single letter abbreviations for these words mean the opposite.
If male/female, M is male, H is female.
If man/woman, H is man, M is woman.
That being said, I am pretty sure I marked myself as a male on the forms back in December when applying for residency... I just checked my ID card and on the back, next to "sexo," it says M-F.
Does this mean they think I am both? Or maybe "mujer...femenina."
Or maybe it means "gringa who doesn't know what gender (it) is"
Hopefully, this will just be dust under the rug and it will never come up again.
