Gender-Biased Wisdom

"All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy" may have its truth, but why does this proverb assume Jack's gender identity is male, namely, a "boy," when we can see for ourselves in the playing card above that this Jack is clearly into gender-bending, what with the pencil-thin mustache and the long, blond curls?

Jack can be whatever gender Jack wants to be, but try to pass him off as a Queen or a King out in Vegas and they'll throw you out of the casino.
