I refer you to my other reply. Two out of three of my most trusted
sources all say that "gender" is a modern, frequent, equivalent term
to "biological sex".
Also, humans no more have 2 genders than they have ten toes. In the
main, it's true, but people are born pretty much on a daily basis
with a deficit or surfeit of sexual parts.
