CBS News published three pieces on gender identities and sexual orientation, in case you were itching to know:
- The gender identity terms you need to know
- The difference between sexual orientation and gender identity
- Social media, celebrities and transgender youth
One of the articles discussed gender identities and gave definitions:
Androgynous: Identifying and/or presenting as neither distinguishably masculine nor feminine.
Bigender: Someone whose gender identity encompasses both man and woman. Some may feel that one side or the other is stronger, but both sides are present.
Binary: The gender binary is a system of viewing gender as consisting solely of two identities and sexes, man and woman or male and female.
