" ...an imaginary individual in a context where their sex is irrelevant." (Dave 126)
Three cheers for avoiding the mealy-mouthed term "gender" when what's under discussion is the difference between male and female (namely sex). In my book, "gender" is a grammatical concept, not an anatomical one. As in German: das Madchen (gender = neuter) refers to a little girl (sex = female).
