University-Level 'Gender Unicorn' Teaches That Chromosomes Don't Determine Sex

If you hate confusion and love unicorns, secondary education has something special in store.

Oklahoma State University’s Division of Institutional Diversity hosts a Safe Zone Allyship seminar that’s thusly described online:


[The national program] is a free workshop designed to identify and educate allies of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer (LGBTQ) community on the OSU campus. A Safe Zone ally is someone who chooses to become educated about LGBTQ issues and believes all sexual orientations and gender identities/expressions should be acknowledged and supported.

The project is split in two — Safe Zone for Student Leaders and Safe Zone for Educators.

The one-and-a-half hour course for students imparts a free logo so attendees can “designate [their] leadership places as LGBTQ-friendly.” Educators receive the same amid a two-and-a-half hour endeavor, along with lessons on “the spectrum of gender and sexuality, regional protections, current legislation, population data and statistics, (and) microaggressions…”

Per The College Fix, Safe Zone works its clarifying magic with the aid of something equine and extraordinary:

“In addition to providing a number of ‘LGBTQ+’ definitions, the Safe Zone presentation (and its accompanying ‘Ally Pack’) contains the ‘Gender Unicorn’ infographic to illustrate symbols of gender identity and expression,” [Do No Harm Program Manager Laura Morgan] stated.

Arizona Daily Independent confirms the use of the character in Safe Zone training.


Distributed by Trans Student Equality Resources, the unicorn is depicted as purple and possessing a strand of DNA in place of its privates. The horse has two hearts — one red, one orange. A thought bubble reveals that the quadruped is ruminating on a rainbow.

Next to the hooved helper, categories and options are explained:

Gender Identity

  • Female/Woman/Girl
  • Male/Man/Boy
  • Other Gender(s)

Gender Expression

  • Feminine
  • Masculine
  • Other

Sex Assigned at Birth

  • Female
  • Male
  • Other/Intersex

Physically Attracted to

  • Women
  • Men
  • Other Gender(s)

Emotionally Attracted to

  • Women
  • Men
  • Other Gender(s)

These are the days of easy illustration. And the above is being offered to allies of all ages:

At, the Gender Unicorn’s mane ideas are further explored:

Gender Identity: One’s internal sense of being male, female, neither of these, both, or another gender(s). Everyone has a gender identity, including you. For transgender people, their sex assigned at birth and their own internal sense of gender identity are not the same. Female, woman, and girl and male, man, and boy are also not necessarily linked to each other but are just six common gender identities.

Gender Expression/Presentation: The physical manifestation of one’s gender identity through clothing, hairstyle, voice, body shape, etc. Many transgender people seek to make their gender expression (how they look) match their gender identity (who they are), rather than their sex assigned at birth.

As for employing the phrase “sex assigned at birth,” the page posits it’s “important we don’t simply use ‘sex’ because of the vagueness of the definition of sex and its place in transphobia.”

To be clear:

Chromosomes do not always determine genitalia, sex, or gender.

In times past, one might not have expected university-level education to be dished by a horny horse. But ours is an era like no other, and sexual sophistication is at an all-time high. Perhaps a cartoon is the perfect way to simplify it all.


Hence, reportedly at Oklahoma State University — and certainly at many other schools — a unicorn is serving as a semi-professor.

He/she/ze/xe/fae is ready to teach international students, too — the Gender Unicorn is offered in 17 languages.
