Yevamot 82: Default to Male

More on whether terumah in this day and age (post-Temple) is d’Orayta or deRabbanan. [What’s What: Seder Olam (Rabbah), here, unusually, used to support p’sak.] Also, a discussion on the sanctity of the Land of Israel, and how it doesn’t lapse. Plus, more on the androgynous, with the implications for an androgynous kohen’s spouse, in terms of eating terumah. The Gemara seems to treat androgynous as male, by default, which begs the question re an androgynous who identifies more as female.
