How one defines themselves with clothes, pronouns, how they carry themselves, etc (i.e. male, female, androgynous, etc). Different from sex- ex: a person may be born female (sex) but identify as male (gender), though for many, sex and gender are synonymous.
"I prefer female pronouns such as 'she' and 'her', because female is my gender." Or "My gender is androgynous, though my sex is male."

A reflection of one's self-image as relating to sexual nature. There are, in general, three genders:

1) Male
2) Female
3) Something you made up one day to feel speshul. E.g. "semiqueer-bi-spirit-shemale". May use made-up pronouns such as "xe", "ze", "schlee", "nflgsufgshuihousu", etc. Anyone who finds this ridiculous is a bigot and is literally Hitler.
Can you believe that Facebook doesn't feature "transquasi-neutermale" in its gender selection?! This is making me sick. This is making it harder for me to achieve self-realization and be myself!

A property of nouns and pronouns.

A noun can have one of three genders, masculine, feminine, and neuter. Gender is never male or female; that is sex.

The gender of a noun may have little or no relation to the sex of its bearer. For example, in German, the word for dog is der Hund, which has masculine gender. A dog may be male or female, but the word for dog has masculine gender.

Radical feminists, effeminate men, and extremely ignorant people use the word to mean sex. They also ignorantly believe that the pronoun HE, when used to refer to someone of unknown sex, is offensive. Instead, they ignorantly and incorrectly use the word THEY to refer to a single person of unknown sex. Notice that French, German, Spanish, and other people have no trouble at all distinguishing sex and gender. A German is never offended by the word ER used to refer to someone of unknown sex, even though ER also means HE. That's because Germans are intelligent enough to know the difference between gender and sex, and that gender may have little to do with sex.

Even well-meaning organizations ask for you gender on applications now, but only out of ignorance. They surely want to know if you are male or female, not whether you enjoy eating butt or prancing on floats in parades.
The word SHIP often has a feminine gender. People refer to a ship as SHE.

Gender is not a social construct, gender is biological just like sex, however, they are not the same thing and should not be used interchangeably. Gender is between your ears, not your legs.

Everyone has a gender and a sex, but they don't always match each other, this is why some people wish to alter their bodies or change the way they present themselves to society. Contrary to popular belief, there are more than just two genders. Some people don't identify as male or female, some people identify as both. Gender is not always black and white, there are gray areas too.
Sex isn't always black and white either, there are men who have XXY chromosomes, and women with internal testes. There are species that can literally change sex in a heartbeat, such as clownfish.
Person A: You were born with a vagina, so you're a girl!
Person B: No, I'm a boy, because my gender identity is male.
Person A: I identify as a blue whale, does that mean I am one?
Person B: You are twisting words, I do not identify as any animal other than human, so no, you are not a blue whale. I am male because that is what my gender identity is.
