Gender is generally understood to be how we identify our gender, as a part of (or resistance to) our sex, sexuality, behaviour, language and morphology (how our body looks). We generally rely on physical appearance and genders assigned at birth to identify but there are many who feel they either don’t fit the gender they were assigned at birth, or fit neither gender in the traditional gender binary (boy + girl).
