  1. “One of the world’s most progressive transgender equality laws was passed in Argentina’s parliament and in the UK, a plan for comprehensive changes to ensure equality for trans people was announced.

    “The proposed system would replace the current ‘gender’ field with one marked ‘sex’, with the stipulation that this be the student’s ‘legal sex’ and only offer two choices, male or female, with no opt-out.

  5. The Spectrum of Transgenderism

    As gender identity continues to be researched and theorized, the field is becoming increasingly complicated. Even with something as simple as sex, research into that field, even research limited to human sex, turns up complicated answers. Being transgender does not immediately impart perfect knowledge of the spectrum, and sex spectrums are still confused for gender spectrums, even within the transgender and intersex community. Hopefully this short guide will prove useful for how we should address one another.

    Cisgender - a person who identifies with the gender associated with their birth sex (males to boys and females to girls)

    Transgender - a person who does not identify with the gender that is associated with their birth sex

    Ambigender - a person who identifies with both major genders, including moderate biases. This includes cross-dressers and club kids.

    Androgender - a person who identifies with neither gender

    Transsexual - a person who wishes their body to match their gender identity; this includes those who have had or are seeking sexual reassignment surgery.

    Intersex - a person who's sex organs and/or chromosomal sex do not fight the definition of male or female. This includes hermaphrodites.
