Is the word Idiota considered masculine, or feminine, or does it depend on the subject? For example, would I say "él es un idiota," "él es una idiota," or "él es un idiota y ella es una idiota?"

  • Note: its really hard for me to find what tags to use since I don't know them all and don't know all of the Spanish words for what they potentially could be, so someone more knowledgeable should update them. Jan 30, 2023 at 1:47
  • You might have added uso-de-palabras I suppose.

Your last option is the correct one: it depends on the article only, as "idiota" is valid both for male and female.

This is common to many words enging in "a", like idiota, astronauta, asceta...
