That's right. With same sex 'marriage' now OK in NZ, plumbers are totally confused about ordering male and female fittings to complete their work.
Some suppliers have been asking if they want two male or two female couplings instead.
Plumbers have reported being thunderstruck when they've arrived on site only to find all male fittings or all female fittings to connect outlets to water pipes.
Of course, there have been leaks everywhere: same 'sex' plumbing just doesn't work.
