Most people don’t like to use the term binary when it comes to gender.
Really, only two possibilities? Isn’t this exactly what we need to change??
So, Here come I and present the epitome of binary: the Yin and Yang symbol.
You need to think about Yin and Yang more like 1 and 0 in programing. Computer language is based solely on 1 and 0 (or off and on), yet – you never heard any programer complain that they can’t program because they are limited….
This system works the same way. Not only the trigram and hexagrams give you 64 possible combinations, but also each line by itself is a movement between yin and yang and has its own possible 64 combinations.
For example – the bottom line of the hexagram reflects the gonads. an in-between line would reflect that a person is intersex. But that same line can be further divided to another trigram: DNA, Internal Gonad, External Gonads. Combination of the biological makeup can represent different Intersex variations.
