Sex and Gender

Sex

Appearances ranging from masculinity, through androgyny, to femininity:

  • male-like ♂️XY♂,
  • androgynous ⚥⚧⚨⚦⚩,
  • female-like ♀️XX♀.

Androgyny is the combination of masculine and feminine characteristics, being neither distinguishably masculine nor feminine in appearance or behavior, uniting sexes in one.

Male is the sex of an organism that produces the gamete known as sperm.

Female is the sex of an organism that produces non-mobile ova that fuses with the male gamete during sexual reproduction.

During reproduction, the male contributes either an X sperm or a Y sperm, while the female always contributes an X egg. A Y sperm and an X egg produce a male, while an X sperm and an X egg produce a female. - Wikipedia
