Our Gender Issue Prompted Many Comments. Here We Respond

Our Gender Issue Prompted Many Comments. Here We Respond:

“We recently published our special issue on what we’re calling the ‘Gender Revolution.’ Humanity’s understandings of gender—both scientific and social—are shifting, and we wanted to explore and explain them.

We knew people would have thoughts and questions about how we chose to cover a concept so in flux. We have received thousands of emails, letters, and comments on social media that span the range of excited, horrified, concerned, and grateful. We’ve responded to the most common ones here—and in some cases, we’ve explained clarifications or corrections we’ve made to our digital editions. We’ll continue to update this page as the discussion continues.”

Answers to Your Questions About Transgender People, Gender Identity, and Gender Expression

Answers to Your Questions About Transgender People, Gender Identity, and Gender Expression:

“Transgender is an umbrella term for persons whose gender identity, gender expression or behavior does not conform to that typically associated with the sex to which they were assigned at birth. Gender identity refers to a person’s internal sense of being male, female or something else; gender expression refers to the way a person communicates gender identity to others through behavior, clothing, hairstyles, voice or body characteristics. ‘Trans’ is sometimes used as shorthand for ‘transgender.’ While transgender is generally a good term to use, not everyone whose appearance or behavior is gender-nonconforming will identify as a transgender person. The ways that transgender people are talked about in popular culture, academia and science are constantly changing, particularly as individuals’ awareness, knowledge and openness about transgender people and their experiences grow. “
