Well, if it hasn't already come into conscious consideration in this
context, I think it certainly should--that Adam and Christ here are almost
certainly being construed in terms of PRWTOS and DEUTEROS or ESCATOS
ANQRWPOS, i.e., not so much of individuals as individuals but of
individuals as types of humanity, so that, of course (I say "of course"
without any intention of provocation and hoping that this won't need to be
argued) is gender-inclusive.
