The Klingon language has such constructions very often and I would not
call them crap. That's just how the language works.

I would try something like this. It's right we don't have no word for
"sexual gender", but it may work with one of the "class" words we have:

{wa' porgh buv neH ghaj nov Seghvam.}
"This alien race has only one body class."

You may also try the other way around, although it does not always mean
"neutral gender":

{be' loD je ghaH nov'e'}
"The alien is both male and female."
