Looking at some other polls with gender identification as part of the response, excluding polls with any options that leave out gender:
In August 2014, the split was 53.5% male / 47.5% female
In February 2015, the split was 48.4% male / 51.6% female
In July 2015, the split was 49.1% male / 50.9% female
Can't make too many assumptions about how things have changed over time, given the gaps in the data, but there's never been much of a skew in either direction.

That is technically true. Sex refers to one being either male of female based off of their genetics and genitalia. Meanwhile, gender refers to the sex of grammar and words, such as how we assign inanimate objects as being either male or female. This is a little hard to demonstrate in English due to the presence of non-gender pronouns like "it", although the easiest example of this that can be sentences like, "She's a fine ship" when personifying a boat.
Meanwhile, if one were to look at other European languages like French, German, and Spanish, gender becomes much more apparent. Using French, because I actually took some classes for that, you will notice how there are three different words that can be translated as "the"; they are "le", "la", and "les". "Le" is the masucline form the the word "the" and is placed in front of "masucline" objects in the language, such as computer (L'ordinateur) or knife (Le couteau). However, "la" is placed in front of feminine objects, such as grass (L'herbe) or table (La table). And, as for "Les", that's the plural form of the word "the" that is used for all pluralizations of words, regardless of the objects regular gender (Les ordinateurs, Les tables).
Japanese also has some gender with their language, however it's more dependent on the user rather than the sexuality of the object, itself. For example, while "私" is used as a general word to mean "Me; myself; I", there are also sexualized versions of it. Men are able to used words like "僕" regularly or "俺" if they're feeling very casual, meanwhile women just have the "softer" "あたし" that is never used by men unless they're extremely meek. Another example with Japanese is that men while almost always end their sentences with the character "だ" which used to indicate a "state of being"; meanwhile women rarely use the "だ" character at the end of the sentence unless they're really trying to assert something.
There are probably more examples people can show aside from these, but these are the immediate ones I know of because of what I have learned thus far. However, all that being said, when using grammar to refer to people or any living creature (IOW, their gender), you always refer to their biological sex.
