I've tried to make clear in other messages that I think these issues are outside the scope of what is appropriate for language tags and that there is no appropriate usage scenario for them.
I would _not_ support variant subtags, and probably not even an extension, for representation of grammatical gender distinctions (aka noun classes) in language tags.

However, gender  is a quite complex category, if we are talking about all languages...
Please, take a look at the list ; especially the list of [non-Indo-European] languages with more than three genders.
For example, Bantu languages  have different kind of noun classification...
