Welcome to the Non-binary wiki

The wiki dedicated to the promotion of non-binary gender identities
About

Non-binary wiki was created on the 1st of February 2017, after the original Nonbinary.org Wiki went down. Luckily, the Wayback Machine has a copy of it. Our goal is to build a new wiki with the best of the old as well as new and improved content.

Since the day of its creation, 4,563 users have been working on 777 articles here.

Non-binary?

Non-binary is a term that refers to people whose gender is neither male nor female. Their gender can be neither, both, a third one or it can also change over time. Non-binary people fall under the transgender umbrella term, and non-binary is an umbrella term itself, although some people use it to describe their specific gender identity too.

Get involved!

This site is a wiki, meaning that anybody (including you) can make a contribution to it. You don't even need to create an account, although it's strongly recommended. These are some things you can do to contribute:

  • Edit an existing article. Search any page and improve its content! You can also expand a stub.
  • Go to the list of wanted pages and create one of them! (You can use the old Nonbinary.org wiki as a starting point)
  • Spread the word. If you know somebody who is non-binary or questioning their gender, tell them about this wiki. If you don't know anybody like this, tell them anyway!
Featured article

Gender-neutral language, also called gender-inclusive language, is the practice of using words that don't give an idea of someone being female or male. For example, the word "fireman" gives the idea that a person in that work is male. An offer for a job as a "cleaning lady" gives the idea that only a woman should do the job. The gender-neutral alternatives are to say "fire fighter" and "janitor," respectively. Then it is easier to see that these jobs can be done by a person of any gender. Gender-neutral language is important in feminism, because changing the way that people talk can help make sexist ideas less common. For example, the sexist idea that some jobs should only be done by people of certain genders.
