Definition - What does Third-Gendered mean?

Third-gendered individuals are persons who are categorized by society as neither male or female or both. In many societies, there are three or more genders that are socially recognized. In these societies, third gender may represent being able to switch between male and female, the state of being neither, or those who belong in a category independent of the male and female gender. Third gender is different from third sex since gender refers to the psychological, emotional, and social identity of an individual.
