update table with male to female And female to male OR Swap Value of Column Without Case Statement

Just for clarity I am involving the original problem statement here.

USE tempdb
GO
CREATE TABLE SimpleTable (ID INT, Gender VARCHAR(10))
GO
INSERT INTO SimpleTable (ID, Gender)
SELECT 1, 'female'
UNION ALL
SELECT 2, 'male'
UNION ALL
SELECT 3, 'male'
GO
SELECT *
FROM SimpleTable
GO
-- Insert Your Solutions here
-- Swap value of Column Gender
SELECT *
FROM SimpleTable
GO
DROP TABLE SimpleTable
GO

Solution No 1.

UPDATE S
SET S.Gender = D.Gender
FROM SimpleTable S
INNER JOIN SimpleTable D
ON S.Gender != D.Gender

Solution No 2.

CREATE TABLE #temp(id INT, datacolumn CHAR(4))
INSERT INTO #temp
VALUES(1,'gent'),(2,'lady'),(3,'lady')
DECLARE @value1 CHAR(4), @value2 CHAR(4)
SET @value1 = 'lady'
SET @value2 = 'gent'
UPDATE #temp
SET datacolumn = REPLACE(@value1 + @value2,datacolumn,'')

Solution No 3.

UPDATE SimpleTable
SET Gender = RIGHT(('fe'+Gender), DIFFERENCE((Gender),SOUNDEX(Gender))*2)

Solution No 4.

UPDATE St
SET St.Gender = t.Gender
FROM SimpleTable St
CROSS Apply (SELECT DISTINCT gender FROM SimpleTable
WHERE St.Gender != Gender) t

Solution No 5.

UPDATE SimpleTable
SET Gender=X.NewGender
FROM (VALUES('male','female'),('female','male')) AS X(OldGender,NewGender)
WHERE SimpleTable.Gender=X.OldGender

I hope this helps, good luck!
