Your next thought is the same as Einstein's, that the randomness is only
apparent, not real. But Hawking claims to have shown that this is not
true in physics, that not even God knows the outcome of the dice throws.
This is not the place to debate that claim, for this is simply an analogy.
Also I would not go as far as saying that gender assignments are random.
There is some history behind them, which quite literally only God now
knows and can unravel. For you or anyone else to try, beyond a certain
limited number of patterns, is fruitless speculation.
