can i ask this withought any responses like "what gender are you" or something abusive, im also not  mocking haveing a go or anything its just a serious question. snake by looks is male with  mustache  deep voice  and generally looks and acts like a guy, but he is a clone and cant pass on dna  or have children so i would think   he wouldn't have  the ......equipment if you get me. once again  this is a serious question  and i do not mean to cause offense so please be forgiveing with responces

well, if you consider that whenever it prompts you to press L1 in mgs4, snake is looking at a girls ass somewhere, but hey, who knows.

Being sterile and not having male genitalia are two different things.

Snake's a man.

Raiden... well, the jury's still out on that one.

Male.

People refer to him as a 'he' in the game, so wouldn't it be obvious that he is male?

Even if he doesn't have equipment, that doesn't mean he's a female. More like a eunuch.

Hes not too old, guys in their 80s have had kids.  Anyway wtf does being a clone have to do with your junk?  A clone is a copy.  They dont come out like ken dolls, how would he go to the bathroom?

He's just sterile, which doesn't necessarily mean that he doesn't have "equipment".

Just because he's sterile doesn't mean he's...Richardless.

alright, time for a dorkgasm:

snake was unaware of his clone status until liquid revealed it to him at the end of mgs1; therefore, he must have possessed all typical male genitalia for him to have thought of himself as the product of a normal birth

being sterile does not mean you are lacking the necessary organs

Being a clone of big boss, he's XY and therefore male, regardless of the status of his genitalia.

But remember in MGS 4 when Naomi was going to give Snake a body examine he was reluctant and when they cut away and came back Naomi was in tears and surprised. Also in MGS2 when Raiden was first talking to the president, the pres. grabbed Raidens balls to check that if it was Snake or not. I dont think America would vote for a dick grabbing president. And at the end of MGS 1 Snake would throw Meryl into doggystyle right away but he cant because Snake has no dick.

I think he should be listed as male. Regardless of his actual genitalia, you refer to someone by the gender they wish to be called. You would refer to a pre operation transgender by the gender they wish to become, e.g. a male wishing to become a female you would call her or she. The same goes for snake, people refer to him as male, therefore we can assume he wants to be called a male, and therefore he should be listed on the page as a male.

When in doubt, look at what the character "seems to be" (unless it's one of those transsexual cases like Poison). Many kiddie/cartoon characters have no genitalia so you go with how they're portrayed. It's better than "well he has no male genitalia, so let's make it a she or an it"
