This function only returns the gender setting on the avatar's currently worn shape, which can change at any time. Avatars do not have a set gender of their own. Information about the user's real life gender is not available. Very useful for some special kind of products like poseballs and animations, also for attaching or detaching some body parts and access rules in some regions.
Sounds useful indeed, but should probably be agent data you can fetch with llRequestAgentData.
