In terms of LGBTQ+ identities, binary is often referred to in relation to the gender binary, which describes the classification of gender into two distinct, opposite forms of masculine and feminine, which is dictated by social system and/or cultural belief. Binaries can often be enforced through legislation, law, and societal pressure.
