Answers may vary, but should contain the following for full credit:
Until recently, constructs related to sex and gender were considered dichotomous, or "either/or" categories. Researchers have begun to appreciate that most sex and gender constructs now exist along a continuum, such as:

Biological sex:

Female

Intersex

Male

Gender identity:

Woman

Third Gender

Man

Gender expression:

Feminine

Androgynous

Masculine

Sexual orientation:

Exclusively heterosexual

Bisexual

Exclusively homosexual


With this new understanding comes a greater awareness that one's gender identity, expression, or behaviors can be fluid rather than rigid, and that societally defined traditional categories may not capture a given individual's psychological or behavioral experience.
