Challenging gender conventions is a sign of progress
It's begun to edge into the mainstream that gender isn't everything we thought it was. RTÉ journalist Jonathan Clynch revealed this weekend how he identifies as gender fluid, and his story opened up an important conversation about gender identity.
Over the past few months, celebrities Miley Cyrus and Ruby Rose have also spoken publicly about identifying as gender fluid.
While you might have put Miley's transition from the very girlie Hannah Montana to her now androgynous style down to a simple sartorial choice, the child star has announced she doesn't want to be boxed into one gender identity.
