New Year is a good moment to start anew and at the very beginning, so I thought it’d be good to clear up some basics about such complex issues as sex, gender identity, and sexual orientation.
  First of all, they are separate, unrelated and completely different things.  Of course, one’s feelings is far more complex than it can be described in a short article, and the following sentences should only serve as an approximation of the topic.

One’s biological SEX depends on the combination of their chromosomes, genitals, gonads and sex hormones.  The binary nature of fertilization caused many cultures to believe that there are two sexes (males and females), but in reality, there are many ones in between (including intersex), depending on the particular combination of the abovementioned factors.
