Although often conflated, sex and gender are separate and distinct concepts. Sex refers to physiological and biological differences between men and women (e.g., male or female). Gender refers to one’s social and psychological sex role orientation (e.g., masculine, feminine, and androgynous). Although there are several differences between men and women biologically, not all biological differences manifest themselves in communication differences. Research into differences in hormones and brain lateralization routinely explores intersections of sex, biology, and communication.
