Gender is a spectrum. People use various terms to attempt to describe where they feel they are on that spectrum. But gender is also mutable and both culturally and personally subjective and so those terms are largely meaningless.


so the extremes of the spectrum are....?

male and female?

Masculine and feminine traits. But as those are largely culturally and even personally subjective the spectrum itself is rather meaningless as well in terms of attempting to communicate to another as to where on that spectrum one believes oneself to be.

I always referred to gender as a synonym of sex in this sort of topic... but I guess it does have that definition too

what you're describing gender to be is what i would use to describe things... e.g. words that are masculine or feminine in languages
never thought to use it to describe humans

the next question would be;
is it a mental disability or does it have something to do with genes?
