Gender fundamentalism is a similarity cluster of beliefs which focus on the idea of gender as a fundamental quality that is:

  • binary (male/female)
  • unambiguous (people cannot be a different gender than they appear to be)
  • inseparable from sexual role in reproduction
  • ineffable (there is no measurement for it, other than birth genitalia)
  • immutable (cannot be altered)

...and that is given to every human at birth, with each of the binary sexes having a set of qualities that go with them. Those whose existence violates any of these beliefs are either deluded (the focus of much anti-trans and anti-gay advocacy) or possibly subhuman (most notably intersex people), though this is rarely stated explicitly.

Subsets of gender fundamentalist belief include:
