    Anogender, or anagender, is a gender identity which fades in and out in intensity, but always comes back to the same gendered feeling.

    Basic information[edit | edit source]

    • Origin: Coined in 2014 by Tumblr user PocketMouse.[1]
    • Meaning: PocketMouse defined it as "a feeling of gender that fades in and out but feels the same whenever it comes back. different from genderfluid in that it’s one gender constantly resurfacing, rather than switching between genders".[1]
    • Demographics: In the 2019 Worldwide Gender Census, one respondent.[2] In the 2018 Gender Census, two respondents identified themselves as "anoboy".[3]
