Eugene, you have not distinguished between the terms 'sex' and 'gender', a distinction utilized by most journals on the topic. 'Sex' refers to the sort of biological matters that you listed above. 'Gender', the topic at hand, includes cultural perceptions, societal roles and distribution of resources and power--much of which at present is based on religious dogma and primitive superstitions rather than current testing data and scientific knowledge.
