Sex is a mutually exclusive trait. You're one or the other and can have no cross over whatsoever. You either have a penis or a vagina (exceptions are not the rule)

Gender is a spectrum defined by society. Feminine traits correlate strongly with women and masculine traits correlate strongly with men. But, you can exhibit some/all feminine traits as a man or masculine traits as a woman. To many though man = masculinity and woman = femininity which confuses the conversation around gender.

I believe it is the difference between male/ female vs masculine/ feminine

they are clearly related, but they are also different.

Are gender and sex completely separate? Is there a discernible difference between "male and female" and "man and woman"?
