The woke world absolutely insists that “sex” and “gender” are two totally different things.
Sadly for them, both the words “gender” and “genital” come from the same Latin root word.
For the word “gender,” the definition is from Etymonline.com. For the word “genitalia,” the definition is found here. For the word “*gene-,” the definition is found here.
c. 1300, “kind, sort, class, a class or kind of persons or things sharing certain traits,” from Old French gendre, genre “kind, species; character; gender” (12c., Modern French genre), from stem of Latin genus (genitive generis) “race, stock, family; kind, rank, order; species,” also “(male or female) sex,”
late 14c., “pertaining to (sexual) reproduction,” in membres genytal “the genitals,” from Latin genitalis “pertaining to generation or birth; fruitful” (also a by-name of the goddess Diana), from genitus, past participle of gignere “to beget” (from PIE root *gene-“give birth, beget”). Hence the English word came to mean “pertaining to the organs of generation.” As a noun meaning “sex organ” from mid-15c. (plural genitals is from late 14c.).
