    Gender bender is an informal term used to refer to a person who actively transgresses, or "bends," expected gender roles. Boy George is called a "gender bender" because of his tendency to wear make-up and clothes perceived as feminine. Gender bending is a form of social activism in response to assumptions or over-generalisations about genders. Some gender benders identify with the gender assigned them at birth, but challenge the norms of that gender through androgynous behavior and atypical gender roles. Gender benders may self-identify as transgender or genderqueer, feeling that the gender assigned to them at their birth is an inaccurate or incomplete description of themselves; some are transsexual and desire to change their physical s*x through hormone therapy or s*x reassignment surgery, while others were born intersexual. Others may identify as Two-Spirit or members of a third gender.
