Gender theory proposes that masculinity and femininity should be viewed as sets of created
characteristics that shape the lives of men and women. It replaces the outdated idea that masculinity and
femininity are fixed by biological determinants, and also seeks to separate gender from sex. Binary gender
roles are dictated by society, this leading to many people not feeling represented by them. The exclusivity
of binary gender roles leads to nonbinary people to creating their own gender.
The encyclopedia lays out a selection of 381 nonbinary gender roles currently in use. It visualizes the immense variety of flags and colors found within the confines of gender and calls the necessity of fixed gender roles into question.
