Genderism is the cultural belief that gender is a binary, or that there are, or should be, only two gendersman and woman — and that the aspects of one's gender are inherently linked to the sex in which they were assigned at birth. It can reinforce negative attitudes, bias, and discrimination towards people who display expressions of gender variance or nonconformity and/or whose gender identity is incongruent with their birth sex. Genderism is of particular relevance to individuals who fall within the transgender spectrum, and is the overarching ideology responsible for transphobia and gender bashing. In addition, much like how transphobia is parallel to homophobia, genderism is said to be parallel to heterosexism.[1][2][3][4]
