There are certain sections of the society which feel offended if the word ‘sex’ is used. They would use the term gender to distinguish between males and females. The word ‘sex’ would therefore be substituted by gender as it is very respectfully substituted to suit the sociological settings (Quina, 2000).
My position is that sex and gender is more or less the same thing and could be used interchangeably. They can be related to the males and females but should not be seen differently from one another because they are two sides of the same coin. Hence it would be fitting to suggest that sex and gender are similar and have absolutely no opposite views with one another. The society needs to become liberal with its acceptance of the word ‘sex’ so that it does not have to be substituted by gender each time the former is made use
