"Die Frau mag sein Geschlecht."

this is the second strange/funny german translation in this lesson (the other: "irgendjemand erkennt das Geschlecht nicht". It´s VERY uncommon to say "Die Frau mag sein Geschlecht". It seems to me, that people saying this try to flirt with you - in a strange way! LOL.

Well, maybe she's bisexual, and has recently left an unsatisfactory lesbian relationship…

So it can be gender, lineage, or family?

Gender and lineage, yes. Family, only in the broader sense including ancestors.

I was marked wrong for putting "The woman likes her gender"

That's because ‘sein’ means “his”; “her” would be ‘ihr’.
