Modern science acknowledges that the framework of neurological gender has its limits, but we are loath to reject that binary altogether. This month in Aeon, research scientist and writer Emily Willingham makes a case for this paradigm shift and reminds us what we lose when we ignore data for tradition.

Indeed, a simple two-category system seems impossible and almost silly given this underlying complexity, and intriguing scientific evidence points away from a dichotomy and toward a three-dimensional spatial continuum of variations that defy any categorisation.
