Many people consider gender to be binary, to have only the two distinct categories of male and female, but gender is a continuum. An individual can rest anywhere along that spectrum, anywhere between male or female or even completely different from both of those classifications. However a person wants to identify is valid. No matter how far outside the constructed norms, we must respect people and their identities. Sometimes the trans* community prescribes rigidly to this binary and discounts others who identify as trans* because they do not fall directly into male or female. Over the past few months, to try to create awareness of this discrimination within the community, many “Not Trans Enough” videos have been popping up on YouTube.
