    How to use "Sexes" in context?

    The sexes refer to the two biological sexes - male and female. Each sex has its own unique physical and psychological characteristics that vary according to gender. People who identify as something other than male or female are also called genderfluid. Sex refers to the biological sex of a person.

    The sexes are determined at conception, when a sperm meets an egg. A person's sex is determined by whether the sex chromosomes in their cells are XX or XY. This means a person's sex is determined at birth, unless they are born with an extra chromosome, in which case they may develop abortions or genetic abnormalities.
