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. Paul
