How is gender defined, and how many gender types are possible?
I watched a recent video on Nepal and (third) gender rights, and reflected on some scifi shows that had aliens with three genders.

How exactly is gender defined, and how many gender types are possible? Are there some in nature with more than two?

I would count three. 1. one gender creates the sperm. 2. another gender creates the egg. 3. third gender incubates/acts as the womb.

note: If "sex" and "gender" are actually two different things (one social, one biological?), then I meant to say sex.
