      Gender symbols are common astrological signs which have come to us from Roman times. The pointed Mars symbol (♂) represents the male and the Venus symbol (♀) with the cross represents the female. Gay men have used double interlocking male symbols () since the 1970s. Double interlocking female symbols (⚢) have often been used to denote lesbianism, but some feminists have instead used the double female symbols to represent the “sisterhood of women”.
