In human society, looking at the appearance of a person is the usual method to determine the gender of a person. People will use their knowledge and common sense educated by their parents or teachers to make the judgement. However, the meaning of male and female should be more than only developing a related appearance. It is more important to consider personality, behavior, sexuality, etc. to define the sex of a person. Also, I think different people can have their own interpretations or concepts to define gender. I attempted to use an interesting way to illustrate the fact that sometimes people may confuse about their own gender. This wearable enables the wearer to change the appearance of their own sex and their sexual organs, so it is more playful and interesting.
