I am one of many kinds

Some say my opposite are all the same

For that others say I'm cray

I can like my kin

I can like their kin

I can be a former them

And they a former me

Kids ask why I'm hurt

For I bleed 48 times every leap

But my role no longer is to sweep

Who are I, and who are they?

  • $\begingroup$ Quick hint, Who are I is not a grammatical mistake, but an hint itself $\endgroup$ – Oak Jan 31 '16 at 18:32

  • $\begingroup$ I don't understand why this question was down-voted, seems like a legitimate riddle? $\endgroup$ – nine9 Feb 1 '16 at 9:10

men are all alike / women are crazy

homosexual / heterosexual / transgender

leap year (actually this line was the giveaway)

But my role no longer is to sweep

feminism

Who are I, and who are they?

Women and men. (But I don't get the grammatical mistake clue, so maybe I'm missing something.)

  • $\begingroup$ This was my first thought as well. My thought on the last clue: Eggs are gender-less until conception (ie both). $\endgroup$ – LinkBerest Jan 31 '16 at 21:04
  • $\begingroup$ Yes, I thought the leap was gonna be a dead giveaway =) As per the last hint, it wasn't anything special, just that rather than a woman/men I meant women/men. Feminism was a nice one, but I was expecting equal rights ;P $\endgroup$ – Oak Feb 1 '16 at 9:57
