Quoigender (from French quoi, quoi "what" + "gender") is a nonbinary gender identity with several definitions:
- someone who feels that gender identity and/or existing gender terms don't apply to them
- someone whose relationship with gender is complicated; someone who isn't sure whether they experience gender or what gender identity means for them
- can be used as an alternative to "questioning", in order to communicate exhaustion or frustration with searching for a better gender identity term for oneself
- someone who is done with gender and doesn't care much for it as a concept; frustration with gender
History[edit | edit source]
The Tumblr user epochryphal coined the word quoigender in 2014, as a gender counterpart to quoiromantic and quoisexual.
Similar identities[edit | edit source]
- Greygender, also called grey agender - someone who has a gender, but feels less invested in it or connected to it than other people seem to.
- Exgender - similar to agender but more extreme--rejection of gender as a concept and a refusal to answer or acknowledge the question of gender.
Flags[edit | edit source]
There is no universally-accepted flag for the quoigender identity, but several have been proposed: one by Epochryphal, one by an unknown creator, and a variation based on the former.
