0003339: Queen of the elves is a man.
The [GENDER:FEMALE] raw token doesn't stop males from taking the position.

Generate a world with default raws - there are bound to be a few male queens.
No tags attached.

In the process of updating Direforged, I noticed a similar behavior in that the ALLOWED_CLASS tag is no longer respected. I know for a fact that it worked before the entity pop rewrite, so I suspect that the GENDER tag was similarly affected, and that something in the entity code allows it to elevate a non-historic creature into empty positions without checking whether they are actually supposed to take that position.

I can also confirm this in the most recent version.(0.31.25) This was on a Windows Vista OS. Genned from a pocket world created in PerfectWorldDF with higher than normal megabeast/semi-megabeast presence, more extreme than average temperature settings for both highs and lows.

This may be fixed in the next version:

"...made it stop ignoring restrictions on gender/caste for entity positions for people elevated from entity populations..."

I ran several test worlds and could not find an instance of this happening. Though it may take volume for this to crop up, I remember it being fairly prevalent. As such, I'm marking this fixed and adding it to the change log per the quoted dev log entry.

If anyone happens to find this occuring in versions 34.01 and above, please PM on the forums and I'll reopen the report.
