==History== The term "X-gender" began to be used in the queer communities of Kansai, in Osaka and Kyoto, during the latter half of the 1990s, when it appeared in writings published by queer organizations in those regions.<ref>http://rainbowaction.blog.fc2.com/blog-entry-122.html</ref><ref name="Dale">S.P.F. Dale. "An Introduction to X-Jendā: Examining a New Gender Identity in Japan." ''Intersections: Gender and Sexuality in Asia and the Pacific'' Issue 31, December 2012. http://intersections.anu.edu.au/issue31/dale.htm</ref> Later Chinese queer community borrowed the terms "FtX" and "MtX". There is a widespread practice of [[Binary genders#Transgender women|trans women]] and people on the trans-feminine spectrum abbreviating their transition direction, "male-to-female", as "MtF". Meanwhile, [[Binary genders#Transgender men|trans men]] and people on the trans-masculine spectrum abbreviating "female-to-male" as "FtM". Following this, trans people who don't identify as male or female substitute an X for their transition direction. X-gender and other nonbinary people have described their transition direction as "male-to-X" as "MtX", and "female-to-X". The term "XtX" is also used by people who were born with an [[intersex]] condition and have a gender identity that is neither male nor female.<ref> http://intersections.anu.edu.au/issue31/dale.htm#n12</ref>
