About

Nonbinary wiki was created on the 1st of February 2017, after the original Nonbinary.org Wiki went down. Luckily, the Wayback Machine had a copy of it. Our goal is to build a new wiki with the best of the old as well as new and improved content.

Currently, 8 users are working on 412 articles here.

Nonbinary?

Nonbinary is a term that refers to people whose gender is not completely and exclusively male or female. They can identify with not having gender at all, with both binary genders, with a third identity, or an identity which can change over time. Nonbinary people fall under the transgender umbrella term, and nonbinary is an umbrella term itself, although some people use it to describe their specific gender identity too.

Featured article: Gender dysphoria

Gender dysphoria refers to negative feelings arising from some aspect of gender experience, possibly including but not limited to:

  • An assigned gender different from one's gender identity.
  • Body dysphoria, where one’s sexual characteristics seem wrong.
  • Other’s perceptions of one’s gender.
  • Social treatment related to perceived or assigned gender.

The term gender dysphoria can refer to individual instances of gender dysphoria, as in, “Calling someone by the wrong pronouns can evoke gender dysphoria.”

It can also be used diagnostically, referring to persistent and clinically significant discomfort with an assigned gender. Healthcare professionals typically reference either the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) or the International Classification of Diseases (ICD) in order to confirm a diagnosis of gender dysphoria.
