Gender identity pertains to our sense of who we are and how we see and describe ourselves. Most people identify as "male" or "female", the "binary" identities. However, there are some people who feel that their gender identity is different from their biological sex. A person who has male genitals and facial hair may not see himself as male or feel masculine. Another person who has female genitals and breasts does not identify as a female or feel feminine. These people do not define themselves as having a "binary" identity. They are often called "non-binary".
