I'm starting to grow very annoyed with those two words because they never have the same meaning in-between two conversations and two people.

In the tale, the empire that built the tower of Babel fell when their language was confounded.

Could people please stop confounding our language?

Gender refers to male or female. Sex is an act that sometimes takes on the same meaning as gender but often is ambiguous when you use it that way.

"His sex" has two meanings. "His gender" is a way to remove that ambiguity.

Earlier I said "gender might be a bit odd for changelings" because that has a very different meaning than "sex might be a bit odd for changelings".

"Gender" is a nice and a more appropriate word, especially for use around children. So we're not redefining it, sorry.


I really say that partially because I had to use the word "gender" earlier for its original meaning and partly because even keeping up with all the social stuff I'm not even sure what you mean. That the body changes but not the reproductive organs?
