What An Interesting Question. I’m not exactly referring to it in a strictly sexual sense, as in male and female, but rather masculine (Positive) and feminine energy (Negative). So, Let’s Begin.
People of late have gotten the idea that perhaps gender is merely a man-made notion, along with the idea that the world is actually polarised (which it is). But if one examines things a bit more closely, it becomes clear that gender permeates everything.
“Gender is in everything; everything has its Masculine and Feminine Principles; Gender manifests on planes.”–The Kybalion.
Take for example, the forces ofnyin and yang in eastern medicine. They hold the belief that many illnesses are caused by an imbalance between these forces.
Silly, right? Not really. Everything in your body just about works that way. your heart has a rhythm. Pumping the blood. and So many problems people have these days are related to Ph imbalances in their stomachs or wherever. and guess what? We are rapidly discovering that an overly acidic body is a breeding ground for disease. Oddly enough, it seems we are rediscovering what our anscestors already knew.
Ph is Acidic or Basic, right? And In Chemistry (Or particle theory) If something is acidic It has Lots of Ions running round it? And those Ions are “negative” or rather, Feminine. Think About it. What Happens in chemical reactions between elements? They often have “Electrons” entering another atom to create something new. Sound Familiar?
Like, the Sperm Entering the Egg? I know. How gross. Not. And that’s another thing. In recent Years people have begun to Sexualize everything. now a woman with a banana is considered phallic (like, seriously, why?). the banana is masculine, sure. But that has absolutely nothing to do with sex.
Gender and sex are not the same. Sex is a manifestation of gender, not the other way around. We live in a polarised world, wether we like it or not. That’s not to say shades of grey don’t exist, but rather that they are merely points between 2 extremes.
Thanks For Reading.

I really like the way you segue. Do you write more? Can I find it online. I do realize I’m late to the party but I enjoyed this entry quite a bit.
Oh damn this is your site. Pity the fool who shares my bed. Good day
