female =D I have a spade tail gal, who has longer fins but she IS a she it's kind annoying for some, when the female turns out to be a male (which sometimes explains why in sororities he/she beats others up )

Oh wow! Thanks guys! I'll keep an eye on her.
Really the only thing that made me think she was a he is because a lot of people told me her fins are too long. But she doesn't do "male" things.
She doesn't flare much or build bubblenests. And overall, I think her body shape is more female. Maybe I did just get an extra-glamorous one.
Either way, I think she's a sweetie!
She's dancing to Dude Looks Like a Lady right now

I think that female spade tails may just have longer fins in general.
How rare are spade tails exactly?

No idea. All I know is my spade tail I thought was just VT, no fancy variation of it or anything :/ then she started to flare at others in the 40, and she had the lovely spade tail! :O and she had longer fins xDD

Maybe someone else can answer that o.o

Why not keep his name "Rosie" and continue to talk with him as if he were a she?

Maybe he's having a gender identity crisis and wouldn't mind being considered female ;)

This entire thread is sort of upsetting for me because I had a friend-- an actual HUMAN BEING-- who came out to his parents as trans, and they had almost the same reaction, ie. ''I feel like my baby girl is dying," "I've lost my daughter," etc. Imagine how upset he was to hear that from the people whose love he needed the most. People (and fish) are still people (or fish) no matter what gender they may be, okay? Try to remember that.
