Gender

A social construct that refers to how one relates to the gender categories within one’s society. These are often described with values such as masculinity, femininity, or androgyny, and usually involves one’s behaviors, attitudes, and appearance. Gender can aligned with one’s sex ( cisgender) or differ from one’s sex ( transgender).
