Over the years, these definitions have been in flux.
My current understanding is sexual orientation refers to the concepts of being
celibate or heterosexual or homosexual or bisexual. Gender identity refers to a
continuous spectrum of conditions relating to one's perception of being male or
female or somewhere in between those two ends of the gender spectrum. And so I
believe sexual orientation and gender identity are distinct concepts without any
connotation of redundancy associated with them.
One point that is very often misunderstood by the general population is that
sexual orientation is referenced to the individual's gender identity. In real
life, that can be confusing.
For another point of view, see:
