Karyotype is not necessarily compatible with sexual phenotype, and
sexual phenotype is not necessarily compatible with sexual preference,
and there is also plastic surgery, etc. Plus, if the transhumanist
types will have their say, the sexual differences will become an
atavism in the postbiology (no need for sexual dimorphism/nurturing
specialization if you grow extracorporeal copies or do genome
bitjoin).
