Gender vs. sex

Sex is the biological sum of your parts: physical anatomy, hormones, and your chromosomes. All of these can be individually changed to the point of legally altering your sex from something other than the sex you were assigned at birth. Gender is totally different.

If sex is your biology, then your gender identity is how you perceive yourself. Your gender identity can align with your biological sex, or it can be in opposition to it. Most people are familiar with the gender binary system, meaning there are two opposite, distinct, and fixed options: masculine/male/men and feminine/female/women. In the gender binary system, the classification is usually based on a person’s physical anatomy, and is set in stone at birth or before birth.
