Now, of course, we're living in the era of gender fluidity.
Long gone are the days where there were simply 2 genders - Now, people can identify with up to one-hundred different genders or no gender at all.
More and more people are identifying as gender neutral...
Or "non-binary," in other terms.
Just to break it down for you...

It can be a confusing concept to get your head around...
While some non-binary individuals identify as either having a gender that is in-between the 2 categories 'man' and 'woman,' others can fluctuate, or have no gender, either permanently or some of the time.
But how far is too far?

Take gender slamming fictional characters, for example.Yep, some people choose to take offense over the gender assumption of made-up characters. You know, the ones that are not real, or do not have a valid, real-life opinion on gender?
Well, one woman has done just that.
And people on the internet were not happy about it.
She's decided there shouldn't be genders in playing cards.
And people had a lot to say ...
Indy Mellink designed to cards to rid the game of gender and race.
"Why should the King have a higher position than the Queen?" she asked.
"Why should the King, Queen, and Jack be white?"
"However, rather than complicating the sex and race inequality debate even more, we decided to remove the gender and race factor as a whole and to introduce a common, universally-known ranking system."
"All the other cards in the deck are the same as usual."
"This card pack was designed with the passion to fight for equality in gender as well as race."
"Our goal is for everyone to feel comfortable while playing cards."
