As more Canadians are faced with the evolving nature of gender identity, gaps in the ways different groups view the subject are growing, according to a recent survey(opens in a new tab) by the Angus Reid Institute (ARI). The survey of 3,016 Canadian adults is the second in a series of reports on Canada and the “culture wars,”(opens in a new tab) and finds that Canadians hold competing views of gender definition, womanhood, and transgender issues, sometimes divided based on the respondents’ own gender. Among the top findings are that 56 per cent of Canadians define a person as either male or female. Men are more likely to take this position, with 63 per cent of male respondents preferring a binary definition compared to 49 per cent of female respondents and 20 per cent of respondents who identify as neither male nor female.
