New headcanon: the reason that elves and men can’t tell the difference between male and female dwarves is that there is no male/female binary among dwarves. All dwarves are born intersex, and simply choose when they’re grown if they want to be dams or sires. Clothing is up to preference and comfort. Professions are up for grabs. Anyone can be anything they want to be.
