Third gender , or third sex , is a concept in which individuals are categorized, either by themselves or by society, as neither man nor woman. It is also a social category present in societies that recognize three or more genders. The term third is usually understood to mean "other"; some anthropologists and sociologists have described fourth,  fifth,  and "some"  genders. Biology determines whether a human's chromosomal and anatomical sex is male , female , or one of the uncommon variations on this sexual dimorphism that can create a degree of ambiguity known as intersex. Not all cultures have strictly defined gender roles.

The Taboo video on The Third Sex caught my attention because it was very interesting how in many different parts of the world there are distinct customs and viewpoints in respect with sex, and gender. I grew up without knowing the difference between the terminology of sex and gender. I thought they meant the same thing until I came to college. Now, I understand that sex and gender are completely different.
