Excellent chart. I have made the mistake of using "biological male/female" in a report. As a clinician I am constantly learning and correcting myself. Sometimes clients themselves will use outdated or negative phrases when referring to gender identity and expression, so following their lead or adopting their language may not always be the most clinically appropriate approach.
Being transgender is more about gender identity than sexual orientation. (Of course this isn’t applicable to all transgender people, but it’s a misconception that transgender people only become transgender because they are attracted to their same gender.)
Exactly! I don't like Caitlyn because of her politics and exploitation of transgender issues, but she is Caitlyn, a woman because she has chosen to be one. Stop imposing your bullshit, narrow-minded views on other people.
