Ah, euphemism and contraction

by john.a.wills In reply to the 2 words?

"Sex" is often used as a contraction for "sexual intercourse", or copulation. By extension, it has come to refer also to simulated copulation. So some people use "gender" to avoid confusion, e.g. talking about "gender issues" rather than being misunderstood as meaning "copulation and simulated-copulation issues", which might better be called "genital issues". But "sex" really is a biological category; the word is related to the word "section", and refers biologically to strains in a special case of conjugality, i.e. that in which there are as many conjugal strains as there are individuals participating in conjugation - 2 in all conjugal lifeforms on this planet.

Whatever we are socially we are on the basis of what we are biologically.
