why ask why?

Hey, why do we call that kind of story "genderswaps"? They aren't swapping gender -- they're swapping biological sex. Admittedly, in most cases, they then make some sort of half-assed effort to acquire new gender habits and reflexes...maybe that's why? We're more interested in the part of the story where they're trying to acquire the new gender than we are in the part where they're suddenly a new sex, and that's why we call them genderswaps rather than sexswaps?
