Special Groups Image - Questioning

A person that is questioning can be defined as a male, female, within the spectrum or non-binary. The term questioning relates to an individual being unsure and questioning their gender or sexual identity. Questioning is an integral part of the understanding and acceptance process, one where the individual will often get the clarity; they need around how they are thinking or feeling. Others will typically take their time to fully explore their sexuality or gender before labelling or sharing aspects of their lives with people close to them. Questioning will most often occur during puberty; however, it can occur at any given point within a person’s life

"By doubting, we are led to question; by questioning, we arrive at the truth."

PETER ABELARD
A person that is questioning can be defined as a male, female, within the spectrum or non-binary. The term questioning relates to an individual being unsure and questioning their gender or sexual identity. Questioning is an integral part of the understanding and acceptance process, one where the individual will often get the clarity; they need around how they are thinking or feeling.

SUMMARY
  • An individual questioning their gender or sexual identity
  • An integral part of understanding and acceptance
  • Questioning often occurs during puberty

  STATISTICS

  • No one can choose or has the right to out you. Your gender and sexuality are yours, and only you can decide when is the right time to accept and share that part of who you are with the world
  • According to a study carried out by the American Psychological Association, 57% of people first had questioning thoughts on their sexuality between the ages of 11 and 15
  • Curiosity and experimentation are common; however, it is not all about labels or completely identifying with a group. Instead, it is about being honest and true to how you are thinking and feeling, and only you can define your sexuality or gender identity
  • People in unsafe environments are less likely, to be honest with themselves and others about their gender or sexual identities. People unable to accept their identities are at a higher risk of experiencing suicidal thoughts, depression, unprotected sex or turning to harmful coping mechanisms
  • People struggling with their sexuality are more likely to identify with being bisexual or non-binary concerning gender initially
