This Chart Has The Potential To Make Sex Ed A Lot Less Confusing

Like most people, I grew up learning that you were either a girl or a boy and that boys dressed and acted one way and girls another. But in reality, that just isn't true!

While several identities are represented here, what's incredible is there are still more! Learning about these identities and how they work not only helps us to be more conscious of the people around us and how they want to be identified, but also can help people to better understand and express their own identities. That's pretty delicious if you ask me.
