Saffy said: "Non binary to me means essentially I don't feel I fit with the binary of man and woman. "I'm making a distinction between my sexual organs and my gender identities.

"For me, I look at my body and in my mind I don't cheap burberry bags outlet feel like the woman I was assigned burberry barbie at birth. "It is society which has placed these expectations of femininity and masculinity. "I just don't feel like I fit in to that rigid binary and I think there's more than two genders."According to the 2011 UK census, nearly 225,000 people said they did not identify themselves with the traditional genders of male or female. Saffy, 21, who volunteers as the marginalised genders officer for Newcastle University Students' Union, is battling to get people talking about non binary identities.

"Just accept that it exists it is not some kind of style or to look cool."
