The Genderbread Person v2.0: a helpful visual aid for explaining gender (again)
Hundreds of comments, ditto emails, ditto Facebook messages and Twitter tweeters and in-person holla-atchas and I feel like I’m finally in a place to release this. I give you the new and improved Genderbread Person! (click for larger size) Depending on what you folks have to say after checking this out and reading the rationale below, I’ll be updating the Breaking through the Binary article and uploading a printer-friendly version of the new graphic.

More accurate Men are from Mars and women are from Venus is a funny expression (and scientifically dubious), but it actually nails down the strength of this model.

More inclusive Let’s take “Attraction” for our example. Just as adorable Due gratitude and a huge thank you What do you think?
