What defines gender? Society imposes our gender based on our sex (female or male) but this fact supposes a problem for transgender people, who doesn’t feel identified with the gender assigned at birth. Inside the umbrella of transgender people, there are who identify as a binary gender (male, female) or a non-binary gender that are outside of the binarism.  Transgender people may feel dysphoria from their body, they don’t feel comfortable and desire being born the opposite sex but they can also feel well with theirs and they don’t have any desire of changing their body.

In addition, society has imposed certain gender expressions for each binary gender, as well as activities. This thought is already being changed, for example we can see boys promoting to wear clothes like skirts or girls having a major paper in activities where they were invisible (Due to machism) like politics or sports.

How effects society in our perception of gender? It’s evident that gender is a society construct but it’s also a psychologic perception of ourselves. There is scientific evidence about these two terms related to our gender and expression? There are more facts in play?
