More recently the world is witnessing an increasing trend in gender plurality. There is an increase in a number of people who refuse to be identified as either men or women. The previous male-female binary concept of gender is being stretched to include categories such as Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals and Transgenders (LGBT). This has forced to radically alter the previous notion of gender. In this essay, in the light of these developments, I will argue that even though there has been an expansion on the idea of gender, gender as a binary concept continues to be accepted and articulated universally. The reason for this lies in the cultural construction of gender and not biology. Biological differences is culturally appropriated to reinforce gender binary.
