Ethegender, Delicagender, Daingender, Etherereagender or Elegender is a nonbinary gender where the interpretation is left up to individuals, but in essence, it is a gender that is unable to be understood by the individual and/or others, and it cannot be explained. It can also be defined as a dainty, elegant or delicate gender.[1] The prefixes for these terms come from the words elegant, ethereal, dainty and delicate.

Ethegender was coined on July 17, 2014 by robotxt on tumblr.[2]
