Some Genderqueer Identities
Agender: Someone who has no gender. They are genderless.
Aliagender: Someone who defines their gender as ‘other’ or apart from existing genders.
Androgyne: Someone who identifies as androgynous, gender-wise.
Androgynous: A style of clothing or appearance, androgyny is also a type of genderqueer, the state of being inbetween man and woman, or both man and woman.
Bigender: Someone who has two genders, typically man and woman (but not necessarily). They either identify as both, or that they move between the two.
Boi: Stemming from the Butch and Femme Lesbian communities, as lesbian becomes a word meaning more than ‘gay woman’ people who fit better into labels such as ‘dyke’ and ‘queer’ - feminine masculinity, perhaps, or masculine femininity, which makes better sense - are identifying as bois, although the definition is vague.
Demiboy: Someone who feels partly a boy, and partly something else, without defining that other part.
Demigirl: Someone who feels partly a girl, and partly something else, without defining that other part.
Enby (or NB): Short for Non-Binary, someone who feels that their gender is simply non-binary.
Genderfluid (or fluid): Someone who is genderfluid moves between genders; their gender is not something that they or anyone can pin down and define.
Genderfuck (or genderf*ck): Someone who is a genderfuck purposefully messes with people concepts of gender, literally, they fuck gender.
Genderqueer: An umbrella term for all genders other than man and woman, or someone who simply identifies as another gender.
Gender Variant: Someone who feels that their gender is varied, either in a fluid or static way.
Intergender: Someone who feels that their gender is in between two other, ‘full’ genders, such as an androgyne feeling that theit gender falls between man and woman. Often used by intersex people.
Neutrois: As transsexual is to transgender, neutrois is the sex equivalent of agender; someone who is neutrois would prefer (and perhaps transitions to) a body without physical signifiers of sex/gender.
Non-Binary: An umbrella term for all genders completely outside of the man/woman binary, or someone who simply identifies as outside of the gender binary.
Polygender: Someone who has more than one gender, either identifying as more than one gender at once, or moving between genders.
Situational Genderfluid (or situational fluid): Someone who is situationally genderfluid moves between genders based on their enviroment. As a sub-section of genderfluid, it implies a pattern.
Third gender: Not the best terminology, as this phrase was used by Colonialists to other and pathologise traditional genders and gender roles. Unlike androgynous and agender, some people consider themselves to be a third gender, one outside the concepts of masculine and feminine, although this is hard to pinpoint, as different people experience this feeling differently.
Trigender: Someone who has three genders, either at once or moving between them.
Please help me include as many identities that come under genderqueer as possible!
I couldn’t figure out how to reblog this or if it was rebloggable from http://genderqueeries.tumblr.com/ but I thought it was a fantastic list when I found it and I actually didn’t know that half these where identities! It actually helped me out personally and I thought I’d share the knowledge.
Please reblog if you wouldn’t act differently around a friend if they came out as bisexual, gay, lesbian, asexual, pansexual, polysexual, or admitted to being trans, agender, genderfluid, or bigender.
(( now I’m off being as I’m not well I need to recover ))
