Gender is, Gender is not by snoogan2dope Gender is, Gender is not by snoogan2dope
What I felt was a more fitting version of a "Gender is...Gender is not" poster I came across online. [link] (No fullsize version available, but you can buy them. I'm yeah. Thusly, this!)

Feel free to print, use, whatever you'd like, spread them everywhere!

NOTE: Thanks for all the faves & feedback, guys! I can't really keep up with it, but I know you're there!

This deviation is open to suggestion for change! Want something added?
Taken off? Is something offensive? I'll be glad to fix it for you - or make a more fitting version.

EDIT: Fixed "JUST male or female" AND placement of "sexual orientation" Thanks everyone!

I might start doing more things like this...seen as it's the only one of my deviations that has gotten any response.

gender expression and gender are different

Thanks for posting this! As a genderqueer person, I'll probably end up showing people this a lot since I'm horrible at explaining things :P

You're thinking about biological sex, not gender, as shown here. Sex and gender are not the same.

And this is what happens when you fail biology.

I have recently befriended a non-binary and it's like being introduced into a whole new world! In the past couple of days they have made me think about gender like I have never thought about it before. It kind of makes me feel ashamed that for my entire life I have only thought of gender as boy and girl. It has become sooo enlightening to learn about how gender does not have to be defined by your sex. It's like my brain had been going miles a second learning about these new ways of thinking that differ from my previous thoughts! Ive started having new ideas like why exactly gender is so important anyway in the pasts and todays society, or how many less standards would be in place if gender was a style rather than something you have to be. After learning so much the past couple of days I'm very aware of how much I have to learn and explore. I can only hope I don't sound to foolish or ignorant when forming new opinions on the subject or asking others questions to form them. ^-^ I shall most definitely be sharing this with my friends. Thank you so much for contributing to my learning process!

I can't believe this is so controversial. I don't see a single trans or non-binary person in here disagreeing with you. I do see a bunch of cis-gendered people who have never once even thought about gender bringing up what they remember from 10th grade science, and being super aggressive and hateful. (And a bunch of champions politely trying to educate the silly trolls and being shot down with rudeness and willful ignorance. "Well, actually you're wrong because..." Haha, no but thanks for playing. As someone who lives and breathes gender-weirdness, I'm telling you this is on point. Haters should get their information from something other than reddit for a change and realize that their way of experiencing the world.

I never rant, but this is goddamn ridiculous. OP, you're wonderful for creating this.

False. Gender is biology not the theory of some braindead feminists.
Only a idiot would say other wise.

Note that before I say any of this, I view this as a DISCUSSION and NOT an argument.

I identify as genderqueer, and am a female biologically. I also believe that gender is a social construct.

When you are born, the nurse looks at your genitalia and says that you are male or female. Then, as you grow, you decide where you personally feel most comfortable. I am a very feminine person, by society's standards--I like poetry and enjoy putting on dresses. But I just don't feel comfortable in the category of being a 'girl'. I tend to wear typical 'boy' clothing.

I have a friend (I'm changing the name for privacy), Alex. He prefers masculine pronouns, and is biologically female. He loves makeup and hair. However, he feels more comfortable as a boy than he does as a girl. 

Gender is whatever title or lack thereof you feel comfortable with. Gender is mental, whereas sexual organs are physical.
