what are the differences between these two....I googled but the answer wasn't clear?
the way that i interpret it in my life:
identity: the label that i chose or how i define myself/sexual being-- male/female/blend
orientation: whom i'm emotionally/physically attracted to-- hetero, homo, bi, questioning
to be clear, i question my orientation way more than my identity.
i am and feel distinctly female, however i am not entirely certain of my heterosexuality.
eta: it would be more accurate if i used the phrases "gender identity" and "sexual orientation"
