The Unicode standard does not assume anything ... it only encodes
characters. The characters it encodes may well reflect the assumptions
of the people who use them, but that is to be expected. It is not
Unicode's job to prescribe how people should categorise gender
distinctions or to encode symbols that don't exist because people
don't use them.
