Excellent chart. I have made the mistake of using "biological male/female" in a report. As a clinician I am constantly learning and correcting myself. Sometimes clients themselves will use outdated or negative phrases when referring to gender identity and expression, so following their lead or adopting their language may not always be the most clinically appropriate approach.
