Other gender

Other gender, othergender, or other, is a gender identity under the transgender and nonbinary umbrellas. This nonbinary identity and umbrella term is used to describe people who have a gender that isn't exclusively man or woman. Some paperwork gives the option to mark one's gender as male, female, or other. In paperwork, "other" is for corporate entities for which gender is not applicable, as well as nonbinary people of all kinds.
