Sex and gender are not the same. On legal documents, including birth and death certificates our sex is recorded. We, and medicical science cannot change it. Male and female are sexes.

Our gender, which we and medical science can change (even a wig will do it) should not be confused with our sex. Gender is a perception of attributes and is masculine, feminine or neuter.
