sexing! the battle of wits has begun

An intermediate-level student of mine had this bag. I was impelled to take a picture:

Your task is to use all your deductive powers to tell me whether the student whose bag this is is male or female. The rough language seems to indicate a male, but the form and style of the bag itself seem feminine. Give me your guess in the comments section.

Compared to many the Korean guys I see on TV wearing makeup that bag looks downright masculine. I'm voting male anyway.

I'm going with female.

Here's a pic with a male model:

However, that oversized pen looks rather girly.

Koreans don't normally seem to pay attention to what the English on their shirts or bags means, but in this case, the "Fuck" is large enough and vulgar enough that I doubt many girls would want their parents to see them bringing it into the house, especially here in "conservative" Daegu.

Thus, I vote for a man, with a slight chance of a very tomboyish girl.

I say transgender female-to-male trying to look tough.

Sorry, Charles, but yes: my student, the owner of that bag, is male.

Charles said...

Ah, bugger. I suspected that the student might be male, but I really didn't want him to be. So I went with the optimistic choice.

So what's my prize?
