Important to know: Gender is a culturally constructed identity that an individual orientates towards and often demonstrates through attire, mannerisms, roles, etc. Sexual orientation is sexual preference and is not dependent on gender. There is a spectrum of sexuality that does not fit into the confining binary that our society has created. Food for thought: Observe people as you walk around somewhere. Observe your reaction to these people. What are you seeing, in regards to gender, and what are you assuming in regards to sexual orientation? Challenge yourself to not assume that a certain gender indicates a certain sexual preference. Observing without judgment is difficult but provides you with the potential to open your mind and open your compassion for all humans.
