'''Xenogender''' (coined by Baaphomett in 2014, from ''xeno'' alien + "gender")<ref>Baaphomett. "Masterpost of genders coined by Baaphomett." ''Mogai-Archive.'' http://mogai-archive.tumblr.com/post/91736136744/masterpost-of-genders-coined-by-baaphomett</ref><ref>http://purrloinsucks.tumblr.com/post/95720973644/masterpost-of-genders-coined-by-baaphomett</ref> is a [[nonbinary]] [[gender identity]] "that cannot be contained by human understandings of gender; more concerned with crafting other methods of gender categorization and hierarchy such as those relating to animals, plants, or other creatures/things."<ref>http://mogai-archive.tumblr.com/post/91736136744/masterpost-of-genders-coined-by-baaphomett</ref> Xenogender isn't defined in relation to "[[female]]" or "[[male]]" (the [[binary gender]]s), but by other kinds of ideas that most people don't think of as having to do with gender. When people talk about nonbinary gender, [[pronouns#they|they]] often find that there aren't any words for their experiences. This is called a lexical gap. In order to fill a lexical gap, this wiki takes up "xenogender" as an [[umbrella term]] for an entire category of nonbinary genders that are defined by characteristics with no relation whatsoever to "female" or "male."
 +
 
 +
Because a [[gender binary]] society doesn't give much in the way of roles or descriptions for nonbinary genders, some transgender and gender nonconforming people address the challenge of describing their unusual gender identities by creative methods, referring to concepts that aren't usually seen as related to gender. This has been observed in very young nonbinary people:
 +
 
 +
<blockquote>"Not all children fit neatly into a male or female gender identity, [[transgender|trans]] or otherwise. For some children, the sense of being '[[bigender|both]]' or 'neither' best describes their reality. [...] Children who see themselves as 'neither' will often speak of how regardless of whether they're with a group of boys or girls, they feel like they don’t fit. This is not necessarily a sad feeling. They just see the kids around them and know that they are not 'that.' Kids in this category often appear androgynous, and will frequently answer the question 'are you a boy or a girl' by saying their name ('I'm Devon') or by identifying themselves as animals. When asked to draw self portraits, they will portray themselves as rainbows, or unicorns, or another symbol of their choosing."</blockquote>

 +
 
 +
These creative methods of describing nonbinary genders come naturally to many nonbinary people. As such, these are an emerging part of nonbinary culture, worthy of exploration and examination. Some common themes of these concepts:
 +
 
 +
'''Nouns and archetypes:''' Some nonbinary people find it easier to perceive or describe their inner sense of their gender identity by evoking familiar archetypes. Instead of giving references to how their gender relates to maleness and femaleness, they say their gender is-- or is like-- a kind of animal, an imaginary being, a part of nature, an abstract concept, or a symbol. Some nonbinary people describing their gender this way do so because they feel a sense of gender euphoria or some other connection when thinking about an object. Some people have made names for some of these kinds of ''noungenders'', such as ''arithmogender'', ''faunagender'', and ''gendersea'' (see below).
 +
 
 +
'''Synaesthetic perceptions:''' Synaesthesia is an uncommon condition in which people have their senses linked together, so that, say, sounds and words bring up specific colors in their minds. Some nonbinary people find it feels more natural to perceive or describe their inner sense of their gender identity in terms of synaesthesia-like perceptions. For example, texture, size, shape, time, light, sound, or other sensory characteristics that most people don't attribute to gender at all. Some people have made names for some of these kinds of genders, such as ''archaigender'', ''cosmicgender'', and ''frostgender'' (see below).
 +
 
 +
'''Neurodiversity:''' Some nonbinary people have mental variations (mental illnesses, neurological conditions, or neurodivergence). Some who have mental variations see these as an influence on-- or an inseparable part of-- their gender identity. These are called neurogenders, and most of them are not described on this page, but on the [[neurogender]] page.

Examples of skills essential to have experiences beyond what can be described as typical, include expertise in hard sciences, mystical practice, or any other skill one has developed sufficiently to be able to experience a fully focused state of immersion and flow, from acrobatics to knitting. It is through the mental state of clarity, equanimity, and unwavering focus that one can begin to release one's grasp of one's physical body, and begin to identify more with one's subtle energetic body, before, in turn, letting go of the subtle body before ultimately coming to identify with the multiverse, Omega Point, or Cosmic Consciousness as whole. It is in these super-dimensional travels and in subsequent dimensions, that the origins of earthly quantigenders can be mapped. In a sentence:
 +
 
 +
* ''"We were practicing our yoga and breathwork rituals when suddenly we came upon another alter ego in our polygender multiplicity It happened like this: As our subtle body gave our gross body permission to sleep, exactly one complete possible timeline of reality appeared before as we could behold all one possible reality simultaneously, extending into the past back to the big bang and toward the future all the way to the ultimate heat death of the universe. Simultaneously, it was as if we were watching it's quantity diminish into a singular actuality as the present moment continuously unfolded before our perceptions. Then, multiple timelines appeared before us, and more timelines after that. Then, we appeared before us, watching timelines appear and multiple. We were watching timelines multiply while watching our multiplying selves watch timelines multiply. Toward the conclusion of this rapid inter-dimensional succession, we became so expansive we began to asymptotically approach a thing that some might call The Truth, or Consciousness, or just the *is*-ness. We saw her, took a quick mental image of just one of her infinite sides, and used it in a later ritual to transmute her aspect into a new quantigender alter ego in of our system. Now her name is "Sadie" and she uses "she/hers" and likes jigsaw puzzles and Victorian-Era trivia."''

Revision as of 08:09, 31 October 2019


Xenogender (coined by Baaphomett in 2014, from xeno alien + "gender")[1][2] is a nonbinary gender identity "that cannot be contained by human understandings of gender; more concerned with crafting other methods of gender categorization and hierarchy such as those relating to animals, plants, or other creatures/things."[3] Xenogender isn't defined in relation to "female" or "male" (the binary genders), but by other kinds of ideas that most people don't think of as having to do with gender. When people talk about nonbinary gender, they often find that there aren't any words for their experiences. This is called a lexical gap. In order to fill a lexical gap, this wiki takes up "xenogender" as an umbrella term for an entire category of nonbinary genders that are defined by characteristics with no relation whatsoever to "female" or "male."

Because a gender binary society doesn't give much in the way of roles or descriptions for nonbinary genders, some transgender and gender nonconforming people address the challenge of describing their unusual gender identities by creative methods, referring to concepts that aren't usually seen as related to gender. This has been observed in very young nonbinary people:

"Not all children fit neatly into a male or female gender identity, trans or otherwise. For some children, the sense of being 'both' or 'neither' best describes their reality. [...] Children who see themselves as 'neither' will often speak of how regardless of whether they're with a group of boys or girls, they feel like they don’t fit. This is not necessarily a sad feeling. They just see the kids around them and know that they are not 'that.' Kids in this category often appear androgynous, and will frequently answer the question 'are you a boy or a girl' by saying their name ('I'm Devon') or by identifying themselves as animals. When asked to draw self portraits, they will portray themselves as rainbows, or unicorns, or another symbol of their choosing."

- "Frequently Asked Questions," GenderSpectrum.org [4]

These creative methods of describing nonbinary genders come naturally to many nonbinary people. As such, these are an emerging part of nonbinary culture, worthy of exploration and examination. Some common themes of these concepts:

Nouns and archetypes: Some nonbinary people find it easier to perceive or describe their inner sense of their gender identity by evoking familiar archetypes. Instead of giving references to how their gender relates to maleness and femaleness, they say their gender is-- or is like-- a kind of animal, an imaginary being, a part of nature, an abstract concept, or a symbol. Some nonbinary people describing their gender this way do so because they feel a sense of gender euphoria or some other connection when thinking about an object. Some people have made names for some of these kinds of noungenders, such as arithmogender, faunagender, and gendersea (see below).

Synaesthetic perceptions: Synaesthesia is an uncommon condition in which people have their senses linked together, so that, say, sounds and words bring up specific colors in their minds. Some nonbinary people find it feels more natural to perceive or describe their inner sense of their gender identity in terms of synaesthesia-like perceptions. For example, texture, size, shape, time, light, sound, or other sensory characteristics that most people don't attribute to gender at all. Some people have made names for some of these kinds of genders, such as archaigender, cosmicgender, and frostgender (see below).

Neurodiversity: Some nonbinary people have mental variations (mental illnesses, neurological conditions, or neurodivergence). Some who have mental variations see these as an influence on-- or an inseparable part of-- their gender identity. These are called neurogenders, and most of them are not described on this page, but on the neurogender page.

Quantigender

Quantigender, Quantal Gender, Quantumgender, or Genderquantum. A gender that is an earthly transmutation originating in a conscious awareness of dimensions of reality typically separate from any of the perceptions of everyday life. Examples of skills essential to have experiences beyond what can be described as typical, include expertise in hard sciences, mystical practice, or any other skill one has developed sufficiently to be able to experience a fully focused state of immersion and flow, from acrobatics to knitting. It is through the mental state of clarity, equanimity, and unwavering focus that one can begin to release one's grasp of one's physical body, and begin to identify more with one's subtle energetic body, before, in turn, letting go of the subtle body before ultimately coming to identify with the multiverse, Omega Point, or Cosmic Consciousness as whole. It is in these super-dimensional travels and in subsequent dimensions, that the origins of earthly quantigenders can be mapped. In a sentence:

  • "We were practicing our yoga and breathwork rituals when suddenly we came upon another alter ego in our polygender multiplicity It happened like this: As our subtle body gave our gross body permission to sleep, exactly one complete possible timeline of reality appeared before as we could behold all one possible reality simultaneously, extending into the past back to the big bang and toward the future all the way to the ultimate heat death of the universe. Simultaneously, it was as if we were watching it's quantity diminish into a singular actuality as the present moment continuously unfolded before our perceptions. Then, multiple timelines appeared before us, and more timelines after that. Then, we appeared before us, watching timelines appear and multiple. We were watching timelines multiply while watching our multiplying selves watch timelines multiply. Toward the conclusion of this rapid inter-dimensional succession, we became so expansive we began to asymptotically approach a thing that some might call The Truth, or Consciousness, or just the *is*-ness. We saw her, took a quick mental image of just one of her infinite sides, and used it in a later ritual to transmute her aspect into a new quantigender alter ego in of our system. Now her name is "Sadie" and she uses "she/hers" and likes jigsaw puzzles and Victorian-Era trivia."
