This question already has an answer here:
From the section of letters of a woman's magazine:
"Being myself of the feminine gender, I suppose..."
Can we say a person is of "the feminine gender" ?
Shouldn't we say "the feminine sex"? Or "the female sex?" Or "Being myself a woman...?"
To quote the whole sentence:
"Being myself of the feminine gender, I suppose I should be favorably disposed towards any proposal which would place women on an equal footing with men."
