Hank Green explains the differences between sex, gender, romance, orientation and more.
“A biological female can be a man who only has sex with women despite the fact that he is attracted to both men and women and kind of feels more comfortable in feminine gender roles.”
Human sexuality is complicated. And now that we are in an era where people are coming out of the closet and embracing the beautiful tapestry and diversity that is human sexuality, it might seem like it’s getting even more complicated.
As Hank points out in the video, the gender you are born as is different than the gender you might identify with, and those are separate from who you will or will not sleep with and why—and even that’s different than who you might fall in love with.
So, take a few minutes and find out about these differentiators so you can be better equipped to talk about human sexuality with the people in your life.
It’s an important conversation and this is video is well worth your 3:49.
