Ambonec is a nonbinary gender identity in which a person identifies as both female, male and neither at the same time. Coined by transmalenaoto (nbshadow) in 2014,[1][2] from Latin ambo "both" + nec "neither". Described by the one who coined it as a nonbinary "gender identity in which you identify as both male and female, yet you also identify as neither, at the same time. You can lean towards any sort of gender expression [...] if you wanted. You can use [any] pronouns if you wanted. You can identify this within bi/tri/qua/etc if you wanted. You can be demi-[ambonec], meaning there could be circumstances where it changes (mood, etc). You do not need dysphoria to identify as [ambonec]."[3] Abbreviation: AN.[3][4][1]

Similarly, "genderdox" means simultaneously having two genders and being genderless. The term was coined by Tumblr user htt in 2014 and is based on the word "paradox."[5]

An anonymous submitter to the Mogai-Archive blog in 2014 also proposed a similar paradoxical gender: Oppogender, meaning "when you feel/are two (or more) contradicting or generally ‘opposite’ genders at the same time, such as being simultaneously completely gender-null and another gender."[6] The post listed several alternative names as well: contrarigender, divergender, and discrepantgender.
