"There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus" - Galatians 3:28
"Gender is an essential characteristic of individual premortal, mortal, and eternal identity and purpose" - The Family: A Proclamation to the World
I don't pretend to know what these two statements mean. Each needs a lot of definition and explanation, which we don't have. But, if I assume for now that they are both essentially true, which is the assumption of the Mormon church, then might the following also be true?
- Gender may not mean what you think it means, especially when used to describe the pre-mortal and post-mortal existence
- Spirit "births" in the pre-mortal existence likely did not involve sex
- At least one mortal example, Christ, was born without sex as explained by James E. Talmage
- Therefore, both spirit birth and mortal birth can be accomplished without sex between a man and a woman
