How Do Sex Charts Can Predict an Orientation?
Sex is a biological trait that determines the reproductive function of an animal, plant or even in humans, through sex-specific reproduction. The classification of an organism into male or female determines its sex. Sex is also determined genetically in both human beings and other species. A distinction between male and female has to be made in order to define the different species of human beings.
Sexually transmitted diseases can be caused by autosomal sex chromosomes or x and y chromosomes. They are passed on through sexual activity and there are millions of autosomal chromosomes in each of our cells. All of them belong to a single family. All these chromosomes are related to the hormones of reproduction such as estrogen, progesterone and testosterone, which are the basic components of sexuality.
As far as sexual orientation is concerned, there is no dearth of definitions and labels. People can fall in various categories like male, female, bisexual and homosexual. Each category is further divided into three groups namely, heterosexuality, homosexuality and bisexuality. Sexual orientations are influenced by physical and hormonal factors, which are inherited from the genes. Homosexuality is defined as an emotional, societal and personal preference to prefer same sex or opposite sex. Whereas, bisexuality refers to a tendency towards attraction towards both sexes.
Sex chromosomes are often used interchangeably with hormones. The X and the Y chromosomes are X and Y chromosomes, and they are very much related to sexual reproduction in both males and females. The X and Y chromosomes are closely related to gonorrhea in both genders. The other chromosomes are not so closely related and interplay very less with each other when it comes to reproduction.
Another term used interchangeably with sex is genotype which means genetic constitution or set of chromosomes that determine a person’s genetic makeup or trait. Many people have different sets of chromosomes and it is believed that these sets of chromosomes determine the physical characteristics of an individual. There are many people who have different combinations of chromosomes and these people are called carriers. Some carriers have two X’s, while others may have one or two X’s and one or two Y’s. Often these two individuals are still linked to each other because their child still carries the same set of chromosomes and it is these carriers who are often referred to as parents.
A third term used interchangeably with sex and gender is non-conformity to established norms. There are a lot of people who do not conform to the sex and gender norms and these individuals are termed as nontraditional gender or sexual minorities. This type of gender or sexual minority is quite often found in the younger age group. This could be observed among the adolescents who tend to exhibit more feminine characteristics and this could be attributed to their lesser exposure to traditional gender roles. These nontraditional gender or sexual minorities are oftentimes targeted or attacked by right wingers, further solidifying the notion that sex chromosomes can determine one’s behavior and orientation.
