Re: [CHAT] Gender and Sexuality!?

What do gender and sexuality mean to you, what's the difference between the two? 

 
 I think the difference between the two (and really how I define them) is that gender identity relates to identity within yourself alone, whereas sexuality is related to your relationship to other people. Pretty general, but I think it works Smiley Tongue

Sexuality is your relationship with how you feel sexually or romntically towards other people (if that makes sense). Gender is complicated, but I'll have a crack. It's how you feel you fit into gender constructs? I think? I don't know Smiley Tongue It's important to recognise that gender and sexuality aren't the same thing and aren't nesacarily related.

@roseisnotaplant so much yes on gender and sexuality not being the same thing! It surprises me how many people still think that. Why do you think it's still so widely thought?

@Chessca_H Hmm. It's probably got to do with stereotypes or just how people are traditionally seen or judged based on how they identify.

Re: [CHAT] Gender and Sexuality!?

I'm late sorry!! But hi everyone Smiley Happy

Gender to me is about the way that you feel inside and how you relate to yourself and to other people. Whereas sexuality is who you're attracted or fall in love with. I once read a cool thing that said 'sexuality is who you want to wake up with in the morning, and gender is who you want to wake up as.' I liked that Smiley Happy
