At the moment I'm especially interested in the question of whether biological sex is really a spectrum. Unfortunately I could not find any good answers on the Internet. Therefore I hope that some of you might be able to present the current state of science here and whether it is already generally accepted in biological science that sex is a spectrum.
What I am confused about here is for something to be a spectrum it must have some some sort of distribution along a parametrised scales. For example, it would be daft to think height to be binary even though there are tall people and short people. Tall and short are relative; height is defined by a continuous factor, length, measured (for example in cm) from foot to head. There is no such parameter that can be used to show that male and female are relative in the way that tall and short are. There is no scale. What I thought is that it relies on the binary to classify gonads as either male or female. So, people with disorders of sex development are still either male or female due to the presence of gonads (which define sex) if I understood correctly. There are only two gonad types since this is the fundamental feature of what sex is. I hope someone can correct me here, if this is wrong.
