Someone brought up edge and corner cases, so I simply have to mention the 
German gender stars ("Gendersternchen").

In an effort to make German gender neutral, some individuals use '*' in the 
midst of some words, e.g. rower.
Ordinary German:
male rower = Ruderer
female rower = Ruderin

Gender neutral German with gender star:
any kind of rower = Ruder*in
