Mmmh... difficult question. I don't consider gender as a black-or-white thing, so I can't really vote for any of the two. I think this whole idea that you MUST be EITHER male OR female is very simplistic and very much 20th and 21st century-like. There have been times in the history of mankind (for example during the medieval times in Europe) when gender was considered much more fluid. People used to play around with gender, wearing the other gender's clothes and stuff like that.
As you can tell from the answers to your question so far, most people nowadays don't even understand the difference between your gender in the sense of identity and the genitals one has.
Personally, I was obviously born as a biological male but in terms of gender, I am somewhat undecided. I do have some "typical" (whatever that means) male features in me but I also have quite a lot of female features in me. I don't consider myself a transgender because I'm more or less okay in my skin and I don't dress in women's clothes. But still, I have always been described by my family and friends and girlfriends as an exceptionally "soft" or "feminine" guy. I don't take offense at this because I don't think it's a bad thing. I know I can be quite a girl sometimes and I think that's just as fine as being a "typical" guy. I'm also not homosexual, which people often think every feminine guy is.
So instead of simply saying my gender is male or female, maybe it's better to use percentage. I would say I'm about 55% male and 45% female. I'm enough male to be happy in my male body but I'm also enough female to be quite confused about my gender identity sometimes ;-).1
