How to represent gender(male and female) symbol in LaTeX?

Biologically, there are different types of gender symbols present. But, male() and female() are the main symbols. Because from these two symbols all kinds of gender symbols are created.

In latex, there is more than one method to represent the male and female symbols. However, the most important method is to use the wasysym package.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{wasysym}
\begin{document}
  $$ \male $$
  $$ \female $$
\end{document}

Output :

latex male and female symbol

You can also use the marvosym package instead of the wasysym package because it contains more than one command to represent the male and female symbols.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{marvosym}
\begin{document}
  \Male \; \Female \; \MALE \; \FEMALE
\end{document}

Output :

different type of male and female symbol in latex

Latex is case-sensitive. That is, small letters and capital letters are two different things. So, the above commands are the same in spelling but completely different in structure.

And you can’t use marvosym package symbols in Direct Math mode. Thus, single dollar and double dollar symbols cannot be used on either side of the command.

Exclude male and female symbols, there is more than one gender symbol that consists of a combination of male and female symbols.

Gay Male(⚣) \MaleMale
Lesbian(⚢) \FemaleFemale
Heterosexuality(⚤) \FemaleMale
Male and Female(⚥) \Hermaphrodite
Neutral(O) \Neutral
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{marvosym}
\begin{document}
  \MaleMale \; \FemaleFemale \; \FemaleMale \; \Hermaphrodite \; \Neutral
\end{document}

Output :

another type of gender symbol in latex
