The word you're looking for is "epicene."
You need to look at last name to know exactly. Hint: Shura is not a female or he would be "Shura Balaganova
But plenty of Russian women drop the feminine ending on their last name in English, so the bare "Balaganov" is indeterminate.

No, it's just a temporary affectionate phase (kinda like midlife crisis), Map will go back to abusing Michael Ernest in no time.

Shura, take note: you never know how long the ride may last.
