I don't recall Apple ever trashing any of their current/past products in favor of their next unreleased gadget. That's more of Microsoft's territory. Example:
"XP Service Pack 3 is amazing. It really ties up all those loose security ends."
Three months later: "Vista is amazing. It really is the most secure Windows ever! XP is garbage which you should uninstall immediately!"
Two years later: "Windows 7 is the most secure Windows ever! What's Vista?"
Don't bother to take your glasses off Sergey, before I punch you. The hospital will cut those out afterwards
"Sergey is so immature to make a statement like that!"
"Yeah, let's give 'im a swirlie!"
"What are you, a fag? Just punch him!"
Well done, way to take the high road, g'nite everyone.
The thing is, he used the word expecting people to take its so-called primary meaning, when society is most likely to take the "losing masculinity" meaning because it's actually more common. That's like expecting people to understand that "intimate with" does not mean "had sex with," because the societal norm is to interpret as exactly that (sex).
Especially in societies like the USA where sex is an abnormally hightened obsession because of repression and insecurity around the topic.
1) It's funny but its not his problem that too many people have such a limited lexicon. I can't imagine any adult that would read his quote to not be able to consider that a word can have multiple meanings.
2) Sex and gender are oft used interchangeably but sex typically refers to biology whilst gender typically refers to cultural or social differences. This means that you are pretty stuck with male and female for sex but society can create a virtually unlimited number of genders. One general example, a transvestite could be male by sex and female by their gender association. Also, in case this isn't known in 2013, it appears that referring to another human being by their chosen gender role is apropos and trumps the sex role, and gender neuter 'it' doesn't appear to ever be appropriate, even among the fringe cultures that actually strive for androgyny.
dysamoria is saying that the fluid spectrum of human sexuality is completely lost on the typical American, who sees anything outside of one or two clear classifications as something to be disgusted with and mock derisively.
