Being “transgender”, feeling like the sex other than what nature has “assigned”, is
different than being “gender non-conforming”. Boys and girls receiving care often
do not conform to social scripts of masculinity and femininity, and these
differences intertwine with other problems with identity attributes.
The literature regarding gender differences is currently revealing a shift in focus
from gender differences and gender roles to the wide varieties within genders,
reflected by the terms femininities and masculinities.
