What do you think of the "Genderbread Person" graphic as a way of explaining gender and sexuality?

The graphic in question can be seen here.

Obviously no simple chart is going to be able to explain all the nuances of gender and sexuality, but do you think this works as a simple introduction to people who are unfamiliar with the topics, or are there flaws to it that annoy you? Do you know of better simple introductions/graphics in the same vein as this one?

I think it's confusing and doesn't do anything to help people understand the terms they are so unfamiliar with.

I don't like that version. But I DO like these two versions better - 1, 2.

I do not like 1 because it makes it look like a line more than multi-dimensional, but I really like 2 because it embraces how multidimensional it is.

The OP's link is a little confusing and would be more confusing to someone without at least some background in understanding the facets of gender, identity, expression, and sex and sexuality, it would need some more text to go along with it. Of gracefire's links, like Genderfree says, 1 makes it seem too linear, while 2 is more multidimensional, but my issue with 2 is that, while i'm sure this wasn't the creator's intent, it seems to imply that it is conclusive, that there aren't possibilities beyond what it has included, while the OP's link clearly indicates that there are infinite possibilities and that this graphic is really just an intro. None of them are perfect, but honestly, of all of them, i prefer the OP's link.

it's one of those things that manages to be overly simplistic and needlessly confusing at the same time. i can't stand it.

It's a bit confusing to me and I'm non-binary.

Ciao. Ciao.
I've seen various versions of the genderbread people, and while I think they're okay, they require a lot of explaining and because of the complexities of the whole thing tend to be confusing on their own. Good for some, but not necessarily a great way to introduce gender/sexual variability to someone totally unfamiliar with the concepts.

I don't think any of them are confusing but I do think that they could be improved. Still, it's good and I would like to see people work on the concept more.

I don't like it. Sex is not purely based on genitals. To say my sex is female would be a lie. physically i am completely male except my reproductive organs. I'm post top surgery, have been on T for years, at least 75% of my physical sex is male.
