Genderless pictures but only one gender accepted

So throughout the Duo Spanish course, whenever it says 'translate...' and the thing is 'the teacher' or 'the doctor', it has a picture that is not gendered. But, it only accepts one gender (i.e. la medica OR el medico, el maestro OR la maestra). So it's basically just asking you to guess 50/50 which one it's thinking about.

I keep flagging it, and nothing keeps getting done. It's kinda frustrating. Is there any way to flag this higher up? I wonder if part of the problem is that it's across many skills/levels rather than just one?

Yes, submit a bug report and include screenshots via

Course moderators are not able to add answers to pictures.
Only Duolingo's paid staff are able to correct such issues.

That's weird. It's the same thing for me, but with animals and food in french. I don't know how to help you with that, sorry.
