Today, the famous non-binary has inspired many people. Also, they have made them question their own gender identity. On the other hand, June is the month where almost everyone celebrates LGBT + Pride. It is a month where sexual diversity is highlighted.
What is non-binary gender?
Non-binary gender people are those who flow between the feminine and the masculine. Therefore, they identify with both. In addition, they take up certain elements and even do not identify with any. According to the National Center for Transgender Equality, this category should be recognized as such. Because it is not a matter of confusion. In fact, these are people who define themselves as male or female. But they do not recognize themselves within all these parameters.
When we talk about gender, we are not referring to the biology of the human being. This refers to what society understands as different characteristics. For example, cultural, social, psychological, and physical that each gender represents. On the other hand, this issue has given way to a change in the use of language. Because there are people belonging to this category who do not feel included. Mainly by feminine and masculine pronouns and nouns. For this reason, the letters o and are changed to an e.
