Identity, Attraction, Expression, Oh my!

My identities

How awesome is this? I’m a visual learner so add in my bitmoji and what a fun teaching tool! Usually I teach this by a worksheet explaining the different vocabulary between your biology, gender identity, attraction, and gender expression.

Starting at top left and going clockwise: Your biology may or may not match your gender identity. I find a lot of people get tripped up there. If it does match that’s called cisgender. Your attraction can be purely romantic and non physical because people identify as asexual.  So who makes your heart go boom boom? Lastly, gender expression is simply how do you present your gender identity. Identifying as a female doesn’t automatically mean you express as a female. Got it? Questions?
