If I recall, Cmdr Data (from Star Trek TNG) was fully android but identified as male, even having relations with a couple of female humans.
What do we use to define gender? Is it the XX XY chromosome? Is it the person's appearance? Genitals? This issue actually is relevent because if Wisconsin passes the gay marriage ban, we'll have to decide if a post-op male-to-female can marry a man or a woman.
