Turns out you can con a con man.
in learning the klingon language, i found that there's no gendered pronouns for anyone. they just use the same third person pronoun whether they're referring to a person, a thing, or a place. so i headcanon that there is just no real concept of gender in klingon society. man? woman? those are terran terms, here we are all just warriors. the default is agender.
