Recent social arguments have ignited the argument between the biological and the social identification factors of gender. Histology is a branch of biology that studies the structure of tissues and the components that form the tissues, which are the cells [5]. In the biological nomenclature of gender, the histological tissues that form the reproductive tract assign the biological-sex. In human mammalians, the internal tissues of the reproductive system matter the most when assigning the biological gender. On the other hand, the social spectrum claims that the emotional and psychological identifications of gender matter the most when assigning the gender, regardless of the anatomical and histological reproductive system of the biological-sex. In social studies, gender identifies as the qualities and behavioral traits of a specific group of people proclaiming male or female traits [4]. Nonetheless, the research identifies psychological disturbance in individuals who suffer discomfort from their birth-assigned gender as their biological-sex, the phenomena of gender dysphoria [3]. In the reported research, individuals suffering from gender dysphoria assign their gender on an emotional basis not the biological-sex. This article attempts to highlight the evidence of biological-sex and gender nomenclatures in science. The author investigates if the biological-sex is a synonym for gender.
