(Content Warning: Suicide, police brutality, violence)

You might have come across the term “gender binary” in discussions on transgender issues.

But do you know what it really means to call everyone either a “man” or a “woman” – and how it affects you?

Here’s Justin Hubbell’s excellent summary of what the gender binary is, how it shows up in our everyday lives, and how it’s led to all of us suffering from outdated ideas.

This shows exactly why it’s so important to respect everyone’s individual gender expression. How do you defy traditional gender norms?
