“We dress to please our minds and not our bodies”

In the first of three instalments, Catherine shares her thoughts on GENDER explaining why she believes the word it is all too often used incorrectly.

All too often the words “sex” and “gender” are used incorrectly - one used when the other is meant. Is there a difference? I believe there to be a clear difference, possibly a little tricky to explain, but here goes

Let’s assume two classifications, male & female (M & F) and three categories - clinical or biological sex (BS), sexual orientation (SO) and gender (G).

Biological sex (BS) is the easiest to explain. In purely human reproductive terms it is the ability to produce either sperm within testicles - male biological sex (MBS) or eggs within ovaries - female biological sex (FBS).

Sexual Orientation (SO) relates to the choice of sexual partner. Those of male sexual orientation (MSO) choose someone of FBS and someone of female sexual orientation (FSO) chooses someone of MBS. Both are examples of heterosexuality. In simple terms: penises choose vaginas and vaginas choose penises!
