Gender identity is the gender which one wishes to assume regardless of the birth gender and physical characteristics. Asking a patient about his or her gender will be helpful in enabling them to get the treatment they require. Some patients may wish to be called by a different pronoun than what society usually labels them with. Asking them is considered as respect, however some countries may be disapproving of this. Some individuals too, believe that there are only two genders, and one's gender is defined at birth. What are your views on this issue?
