Gender is one of the factors that cause so many issues in this world. Let these quotes about identity help you to comprehend it more.

  • "There is no gender identity behind the expressions of gender... identity is performatively constituted by the very 'expressions' that are said to be its results." ― Judith Butler
  • "Gender is not something that one is, it is something one does, an act… a doing rather than a being." ― Judith Butler
  • "If you find yourself in a relationship or even a friendship with someone who's conflicted with their gender identity, just be kind. This is not a life choice. This is something that you are born with. This is like being born with a gene for being tall, short, black, white, gay, straight - it's not a choice." ― Linda D. Thompson
  • "We are undermining a generation's happiness by depriving them of national identity, religious identity, and gender identity" ― Dennis Prager
  • "Your gender identity is who you are. Sexual identity is who you bounce that off of." ― Andrew Solomon
  • "I think we all are born inside of our parents' narratives. We stay there for a good while. We are taught their narratives about everything: their marriage, the world, God, gender, identity, etcetera. Then, at some point, our own narrative develops too much integrity to live inside that story. We don't ever fully escape it, but we move into our own stories." ― Melissa Febos
  • "Gender is not something that one is, it is something one does, an act... a "doing" rather than a "being". There is no gender identity behind the expressions of gender; that identity is performatively constituted by the very "expressions" that are said to be its results. If the immutable character of sex is contested, perhaps this construct called 'sex' is as culturally constructed as gender; indeed, perhaps it was always already gender, with the consequence that the distinction between sex and gender turns out to be no distinction at all." ― Judith Butler
  • "To parents who find a child's disclosure about sexual or gender identity challenging, I always urge what I'd call "moderated" honesty. If you can't say "I love you," then say something like, "I'm going to need some time to digest this news." Buy time this way. And then think." ― Steven Petrow
  • "The image of God, then, involves gender identity and complementarity. God created gender in duality as male and female." ― Andrew Comiskey
  • So now I'm thinking about it. I'm imagining sitting down with my parents and actually saying, "I'm gay." And you know what? It makes me a little mad. I mean, straight guys don't have to sit their parents down and tell them they like girls.” ― Michael Thomas Ford

  • "To change man, the audience by which he judges himself must be changed. A man is defined by his audience: by the people, institutions, authors, magazines, movie heroes, philosophers by whom he pictures himself being cheered and booed. Major psychological disturbances, 'identity crises', are caused when an individual begins to change the audience for whom he plays: from parents to peers; from peers to the works of Albert Camus; from the Bible to Hugh Hefner." ― Luke Rhinehart
  • "As an actor, you're always playing different people, so you yourself are always kind of going through an identity crisis." ― Josh Hutcherson

  • "As a teenager I felt misunderstood. I felt confused. Somewhere in that confusion was me. The me I was destined to become.” ― Daniel Abbott
  • "I had observed people whose identity crises around race seemed analogous to other people's identity crises around gender." ― Jess Row
