it has been 100-years since sigmund freud discovered the subconscious, and explained the oedipal complex. since then, there have been many schools of psychiatry, and there are about 16-major schools at present. a new school is the psychology of sex and gender, including identity consciousness.
if we look at our society and there are 330-million persons living in the USA, and 1-in-6 are gay (55-million) ; then, the odds are that there are more then 2-self-identities.
while sociology shows gender identity, gender roles, and gender membership; sexual identity, sexual roles, and sexual membership.
psychologists have observed over 147-different types of self-identity based on sex-gender differences; so modern psychology of sex-and - gender has 147-self-identities.
individual differences are 7-types of self-identity in gender; heterosexual, homosexual, bi-sexual, trans-sexual, inter-sexed, omni-sexual, and a-sexual. 3-types of sexual-self-identity : male, female, or inter-sexed (hermaphrodite). 7-types of sexual-orientation, which is self-identity based on sexual attraction: heterosexual, homosexual, bi-sexual, transsexual, inter-sexed, a-sexual, and omni-sexual.
when we multiply 7X3X7 = 147 types of self-identity.
to deny individual identity is to be a gender-nazi.
