Re: how to deal with gender

I would use the gender attribute instead of creating a new entity in my
model… But it depends on your model design

Appreciate this is a path well travelled probably.

What’s the best way of to deal with gender.

i.e. a Person is either Male or Female (generally and fot my purposes
I’ll stick with that rule).

So is it best to go Person with an attribute gender, or, I guess it’s
best to do something like this - the rails way?

Person
belongs_to: gender

Gender
has_many: people

Sorry if this is such an obvious question just want to do it right.
