Sex (Body) (https://homosaurus.org/v3/homoit0001269)
- The category assigned to an individual to describe their body and its role in sexual reproduction, usually based on external anatomy, but also including chromosomes, gene expression, hormones, and internal and external reproductive/sexual organs. Although sex is often described as binary, it exists as a spectrum with significant variation in the biological attributes that comprise sex and the way it is defined in different cultural contexts.
