Binary sexual system

The binary sexual system or model, is a traditional classification of people sexuality that establishes two strictly delimited and excluding categories for four of the five main components of Sexual Identity. Female, male, woman, men, feminine, masculine, homosexual and heterosexual are their categories.

This system is used as a normative by certain sectors of society that consider deviation, abnormality or pathology, any manifestation of sexual diversity that does not adjust those categories (excluding homosexuality, of course).

However, from a pedagogical point of view, it is useful to begin to explain human sexuality and as a model to overcome, being replaced by the non-binary sexual system.
