This article is in need of attention.

Gender generally refers to a person's sense of gender identity as a man, woman, or some other gender identity. A person's gender is generally considered to be independent of their physical sex (which refers to their general physical characteristics) and their gender presentation (which refers to whether they engage in behavior or dress in ways socially associated with masculinity or femininity). When a persons gender identity corresponds with a person's physical sex, as male or female, they are considered cisgendered. When the physical sex and gender differ, they may identify as transgender, gender variant, or genderqueer.

If the person is physically intersex, the line for transgender is blurred significantly. It can be thought that any gender an intersex person identifies with could be considered cisgender.
