    Pink and blue on the ends of the shape represent the “girl” and “boy” genders, while the blue/gray, faded navy, and light purple represent the body of the gender spectrum. The green triangles represent where exactly each gender falls on the spectrum, which is “near girl” in the juxera flag and “near boy” in the proxvir flag, and point toward either pink or blue.

    Proxvir is a masculine gender describing individuals who are "near-male". It is one gender, as opposed to demiboy, which is often used to describe a combination of genders (for example, agender and male, or partially male and partially another gender). Proxvir individuals don't partially identify with other genders, as proxvir is a gender in and of itself.[1]

    Because proxvir is a whole gender, proxvir individuals may also identify as thirdgender. Proxvir is meant to be used as an adjective (ex. "I am Proxvir", not "I am a Proxvir").

    In the 2019 Gender Census, 0.1% of participants identified with proxvir.[2] In the 2020 Gender Census, 22 respondents (0.09%) were proxvir.[3]

    Origin[edit | edit source]

    The term and original flag was coined by Tumblr user wulfgendur,[4] also known as Ren (he/him, xe/xem), who also coined the term juxera, the "near-female" counterpart of proxvir.[4]

    Proxvir was created from the Latin adjective for "near", proximus, and masculine Latin noun vir.[1]

    There is an alternative flag consisting of blues and greens, however it is unknown who made this variation.
