Understanding gender

So, this is the “genderbread person” – this is a great introduction to gender. It shows how gender is not the same as your biological sex and explains a bit about “expression” and “identity”. It ALSO show they’re all on a scale and you’re not really just “one or the other” (in other words, not “binary”)

It’s a free download from www.itspronouncedmetrosexual.com and you can watch its creator Sam Killermann talk about it in this TED Talk below too. It’s great in highlighting the difference between gender and sexuality.
