Being gender fluid may have little to do with one’s birth sex or their sexual orientation.

Genderqueer (GQ): Is most commonly used to describe a person who feels that his/her gender identity does not fit into the socially constructed "norms" associated with his/her biological sex. Genderqueer is an identity that falls anywhere between man/boy/male and woman/girl/female on the spectrum of gender identities.

Genitals: The sexual organs of either sex.

Genitorture: Torture of the genitals.
