About

Gender is a similarity cluster or conceptual model used to simplify explanations of a number of biological phenomena. As these phenomena underlie a great deal of biology is often taken as being themselves fundamental to how biology operates, but this view (known as gender essentialism) is mistaken.

Terminology

The word sex is (somewhat confusingly) often used as a synonym for gender.
