I've heard that some people are confused by other people of different genders. I am aware that this is a farfetched concept, but I've decided to partly explore it for the sake of hijinks in a fictional story, which is something I believe has never been attempted before.
TO THE MOOOOOON!
The group assignment is based on an actual group assignment I had in high school. I don't remember all the specifics, but I do remember the idea being somewhere other than Earth, and one of the items being compass (I'm not 100% certain the actual scenario was on the moon).
I asked myself Grace's question, thought of the logic in panel two, and then countered that logic with "what if that's intentional, and the compass is a bad idea?" I vaguely remember not being able to focus on much else. My mental compass was stuck pointing at the hypothetical compass.
My understanding now is that a compass on the moon probably wouldn't point north, but might react in some way on the moon. I suppose that could potentially help with navigation in some way, but it wouldn't be as straightforward as going by cardinal directions.
