Gender expression is "The way in which a person expresses their gender identity through clothing, behavior, posture, mannerisms, speech patterns, activities and more."[1] Within the gender binary, the two main categories of gender expression are feminine (femininity) and masculine (masculinity). Additionally, a gender expression can be androgynous (androgyny), though there is no agreement on whether androgyny means a lack of gender markers, or a mix of feminine and masculine gender markers. A feminine person isn't necessarily female, a masculine person isn't necessarily male, and an androgynous person isn't necessarily an androgyne or nonbinary.
