I don't mind a female in charge of something (or senior as eg recently, a bishop) or a male monarch. We tend to assume that gender is something universal and closely tied to character, which may be...

Dunno, tell me. And once the typo discovered and the originators informed, how long did it take to correct - an hour? All morning?
