Gender identity is how a person thinks about themselves. It is not binary, but exists along a continuum, much like gender expression, biological sex, and sexual and romantic attraction. One particular graphic that Dr. Thantham shared of the Genderbread Person is helpful in depicting the wide range of ways that a person may self-identify. There is a lot to consider and this graphic provides a good jumping off point for better understanding gender. For even more information, I would recommend exploring www.itspronouncedmetrosexual.com as a good starting point.
