Gender identities define how one feels about themselves and decides how to show their gender through their items of clothing in society, though it is not restricted just to the clothing style. Genders are not confined only to being male or female. There’s more to this than meets the eye.
You must have heard about the group LGBTQAP+ so, let’s know more about them.
The ‘L’ in the LGTBQ+ stands for this. A lesbian is a homosexual woman who is physically attracted to other women.
This stands for the ‘G’. A gay man is a homosexual man who is sexually driven towards other men.
A Bisexual person is romantically or sexually attracted to both the genders – male and female.
‘Trans’, usually abbreviated for a transgender, is a person whose gender identity is different from the sex the doctor put down on their birth certificate. Transgender people may be lesbian, gay, straight, or bisexual.
The person who was assigned female at birth but has figured expression to the male gender identity is said to be a transgender man, whereas the transgender woman is the one who was assigned male at birth but has adapted expression to female gender identities.
An asexual person feels low or lack of sexual attraction towards other people. Asexual people engage in sexual activity sometimes even after lacking sexual attraction, because they may have a desire to pleasure themselves or romantic partners, or to have children.
Also known as Omnisexuality. A pansexual person is someone who is attracted to people regardless of other biological sex, genders, or gender identities. Pansexuals call themselves as gender-blind, defending that gender and sex do not determine their romantic or sexual attraction to others.
Queer is a collective term for gay, bisexual, transgender, and also the ones who are questioning. This term is usually liked by the younger people of the LGBT party. Queer is used as the official label for the LGBT+ in academics and politics.
Questioning is the term used for people who are still in the process of figuring their sexual orientation and gender identities and are uncertain about the same.
A genderfluid person is someone who feels that their gender is fluid and can change with time. They often desire to stay flexible. They may identify themselves as a man one day, and as a woman, another day, so it is better to ask them what they feel like at the moment. They may use gender-neutral pronouns such as ‘they/them’.
