Gender connotes not simply about our genitals but emphasizes more on the sexual orientation. There are three variable pairs here; the male and the female, masculinity and femininity, the left and right hemispheres of the brain.
The Physical Aspect
Yes, gender is not about the genitals but gender cannot be easily understood without understanding sex. We manifest through the proper combination of chromosomes that mostly defines our prominent traits.
Women inherit the XX chromosome while men get the XY chromosomes. Stronger traits are contained in the Y chromosomes creating a difference from the female traits.
When we say men, we have the idea of masculinity because we expect men to be strong. The physical build of men is naturally designed to be stronger compared to women while women are naturally more caring and understanding. This is because we have something in our DNA called single nucleotide polymorphisms- the reason why men and women have distinct differences.
Thus, in the physical plane, a woman or a man is simply identified by their sexual organs.
The Mental Aspect
The difference between a man and a woman’s body is highly evident. Since the woman has some of the male elements and men have women elements, we all contain both genders.
The masculine elements are the ones who impose on irradiating, expression, and emphasizing on the will to do things. This is the authoritative power dee inside the human mind, that strictly enforces reason, that, without the feminine aspect, would have resulted in chaos.
Because of the feminine elements being more open to new thoughts and concepts, it can control the masculine elements of strongly imposing their ideals. They are also the ones focused on constructing new ideas, thoughts- basically, your imagination.
If there is only masculine, it could result in a chaotic mindset as it only understands their ideals as correct, always moving forward without order. And with only the feminine, it could result in constant thinking and balancing until you give up without trying anything. That is why it is important to create a balance between these two elements.
The Spiritual Aspect
The spiritual aspect of the law of gender is our ability to connect with our Creator. To understand him, we must understand his laws.
God governed the earth with love and care, thus the creation of a perfectly-balanced universe. If you get to understand what God wants us to do, you will live the life walking on the path of Christ, His Son- where everything was created through Him.
Just as how God was within His Son but remains two different entities, it shows that two different beings could have the same mindset as you evolve in spirituality. This is the type of intellectual evolvement we should pursue, to be able to balance out the two different elements inside our minds.
We see God as an omnipotent being that has the authority to punish the evildoers and reward those who did good. This is also the eminent control of masculinity and femininity as God invokes power but at the same time, rewards peace. And to be able to adapt to this mindset is to be able to understand the will of God which we are to direct our lives into.
