The gender spectrum is an extension of the gender binary. The spectrum is a linear model, ranging from 100% man to 100% woman with various states in between. The gender galaxy is a further extension of this that includes space for all genders, including those left out of the gender spectrum.
e.g. Tanner was excited when he first heard of the gender spectrum because it meant that his lack of enthusiasm about being a man wasn’t something abnormal, but rather a totally normal variation of human diversity.
