Your gender defines who you are, it being a man, a woman, a non-binary person, or any other kind of GNC type.
Your sex is your body, which can or cannot match your gender, and that's perfectly fine too.
Your sex usually refers to your body, which can or cannot match your gender, and that's perfectly fine too.
> I must say that I am not comfortable with associating the word sex with the body, notably for its socially accepted association in certain circles, i.e. that sex wouldn't just be an activity, but would be part of someone's identity.

A body is also not "binary", it's a much more complex machine with lots of interferences and organisms, and we can also classify lots of different body types (I can come up with the male, female, intersex, androgynous, hermaphrodite archetypes, but there are probably much more "known" archetypes on the sex spectrum too), and it's possible to have both male and female features.
People sometimes are attracted to a certain gender, or not, and they can as well be attracted to a certain body type, or sex.
