Users can potentially select a user language other than ka in their
preferences, where gender could make a difference. Would there perhaps be a
better way of wording the preference instead which would make it less weird?
Perhaps make the choices be something along the lines of "default", "male in
languages that make the distinction", "female in languages that make the
distinction". (Just throwing ideas out there). On the other hand, there's
probably not very many users who would select a different language, and those
that do may not overly care about the gender feature.

this is much more of an i18n thing
