“Many cultures describe gender in binary terms such that a person is either male or female. Outside of this binary categorisation of gender, throughout history, some societies have
acknowledged a third gender that would currently fall under the umbrella term of non-binary – in other words genders that are not considered either male or female. Gender is initially and most often linked to the sex a person is assigned at birth (natal sex) which is recorded on a person’s birth certificate. In most societies, once a baby has been identified as either male or female, that ‘label’ will mean they will be exposed to a number cultural, social and behavioural expectations relating to that gender. These can include, for example, physical expectations such as wearing different clothes items or having different hair lengths or behavioural ‘norms’ such as expecting females to be more nurturing than
males or expecting males to be more assertive than females. All these expectations can be challenged, ignored and resisted and not everyone conforms to them. Anyone who does not
adhere to these gender expectations could be described as ‘gender non-conforming.’
Reactions to gender non-conformity vary from person to person and from culture to culture. Some will react negatively and others will have challenged the restrictive nature of gender
‘norms’ and be more accepting of variation in how different people express their gender. Many people believe a person’s gender identity (an individual’s sense of which gender they
are) is not necessarily fixed or related to the sex they were assigned at birth. Transgender or ‘trans’ is an umbrella term to describe a person whose gender identity is different from the
sex on their birth certificate. The gender identity a person ends up with is likely to be the result of a mixture of biological, social, cultural and psychological influences.”
