Quoigender (from French quoi, quoi "what" + "gender") is a nonbinary gender identity with several definitions:

  • someone who feels that gender identity and/or existing gender terms don't apply to them
  • someone whose relationship with gender is complicated; someone who isn't sure whether they experience gender or what gender identity means for them
  • can be used as an alternative to "questioning", in order to communicate exhaustion or frustration with searching for a better gender identity term for oneself
  • someone who is done with gender and doesn't care much for it as a concept; frustration with gender

History[edit | edit source]

The Tumblr user epochryphal coined the word quoigender in 2014 to go along with quoiromantic and quoisexual.
