inner idea of self-image
I don't know what that is, but I don't think that I have one.

Gender and race are completely different. Did you know that some societies around the globe have as many as 5 different genders? It's a culturally accepted thing to have multiple genders, but hardly anybody wants to change races. Apples and oranges.
I hope you aren't suggesting that all societies around the globe divide people into the same number of races...
In any event, they're both socially constructed nonsense, which is all that really needs to be said about either of them. Sex, on the other hand, is quite different because all you have to do is look at the chromosomes and (with rare exceptions) you have a straightforward, bright-line, binary distinction.
