60.011 References to Sex and Gender in TMA Policy: The Texas Medical Association supports that policy containing references to "sex" or "gender" reflect proper usage of the words. The AMA Journal of Ethics suggests “sex” be used when referencing the biological differences between males and females and “gender” be used when referencing the complex psychosocial self-perceptions, attitudes, and expectations people have about members of both sexes (Res. 112-A-19).
