The fact is that neither the underlying greek nor the resulting english give us clarity here, the issue is not settled. To allow tradition to speak to the question, it should be clear. In this case tradition is not clear, not even close.
And yes I would think that you would be much more receptive to debate whether Junia was male or female. I mean why not, you are in much better shape there. Junias apparently is not an actual name but rather a possible nickname for Junianas. Also Junia is connected to Andronicus with the word "and" I would suspect that a word search could provide some guidance to whether this was common for Paul when he referred to a husband and wife.
On the other hand maybe not, for although Junias does not show up in greek anywhere, it has been found in latin literature, and remember Paul was writing to the Romans here, perhaps limiting the search to greek texts is not in keeping with intellectual honesty? Also it should be noted that the only thing determinative as to which name was actually contemplated by Paul is an accent mank, these accent marks were not present until the ninth century, thus they reflect opinion rather than fact. And if we are to lean on the tradition that this person was possibly an apostle (although not really, since we know the names of the twelve) then we must conclude that this person is male as tradition dictates, for there is simply not enough evidence to break ranks here.
So is the issue of gender settled, no I don't think that it is. However I am on your side, I think that Junia was in fact female. Not an apostle.
And please remember that this debate has nothing to do with female ordination in my mind, none whatsoever. I have that question settled, the CotN has it settled as well and we have been able to peacefully co-exist. So lets debate this for fun, there isn't anything at stake here, I'm not trying to gore anyone's ox. On the other hand lets not declare any cows to be sacred, if you get my drift.
