===Problems=== In a [[gender binary]] culture that has nonbinary erasure, people grow up without hearing that there could be more than two genders. Because of this, nonbinary erasure makes it more difficult for non-binary people to come to the understanding that they are non-binary in the first place. Nonbinary erasure can show itself as a refusal to acknowledge that someone is non-binary, when asked to do so. If a person refuses to call anyone by any [[pronouns]] other than "he" or "she," this is nonbinary erasure. If an organisation refuses to let paperwork show a non-binary person's preferred [[Gender neutral titles|gender neutral title]] or [[Legal gender|legal gender-neutral markers]], this is nonbinary erasure. Some cultures are less inclined to nonbinary erasure, because they have [[gender-variant identities worldwide|other gender roles]], for more than two genders. This shows that nonbinary erasure is not a universal way of thought. It isn't the same all around the world. This also shows that it could be possible for people in a culture that has nonbinary erasure to make it less inclined to have nonbinary erasure.
