    “Freaky finds novel ways–Millie being able to defend herself with the Butcher’s size; the Butcher discovering he can disarm victims with Millie’s looks–to illustrate that gender and sex are two different things”
    Those both actually seem to be in accordance with the gender stereotype associated with the sex of each body (regardless of how the consciousness inside each body personally identifies). If Millie learns that she can act differently once she’s back in her original body, that might indicate a disruption of the gendered socialization imposed on her because of her sex. A movie that actually illustrates the distinction between sex & gender is “Sworn Virgin”, although some have criticized how the ending handles that angle.
