Gender Grammar




Note:
You can read more about terminology in our definitions section.
We have also had concerns about stating that genital reassignment surgery does not change sex. We say this because sex is an ambiguous term that does not exclusively reference genitalia. Additionally, many, if not most, trans people do not get surgery. Calling gender affirming surgery a “sex change” leads people to believe that this is the only step in transitioning.
