Talk:List of uncommon nonbinary identities

From Nonbinary Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

This article is extremely long, and most of the terms are obscure and not used enough to warrant their own article. However, they are expanded enough to be more than just a few words in an incredibly lenghty single article. I propose to subdivide this article into sub-articles that divide these genders into categories. I will propose this on the discord as well. --MorningSparrow (talk) 02:25, 9 May 2019 (UTC)

Can you explain what harm there is, in an article being very long? Enough to justify reorganizing all this content again? At one time, in the old wiki, some editors had split this content into several articles. For example, moving all genderfluid-like identities into the genderfluid article, or moving all xenogender-like identities into a section in the xenogender article. Later, other editors preferred to move the entries back into this main article, so that there was a centralized list. In the history of this wiki, this particlar article has been content that editors have differed about how to organize. I believe that it's more valuable for us as wiki editors to build content, than to reorganize content over and over again. -Sekhet (talk) 05:17, 10 May 2019 (UTC)
I think there is no harm, per se, however I think it makes it difficult to use. Personally I was seeking to use this article to try to explore genders that might fit. However because of the length and difficulty to navigate it, it was neigh unusable. I'd hate for that to be the experience for any other questioning person.

I think if we make a decision on where to place listed identities, we should add it to the style guide, to prevent this constant change. --MorningSparrow (talk) 22:38, 11 May 2019 (UTC)

recent rollback[edit source]

okay, for clarities sake, i'm rolling back that addition as a) there wasn't a source and b) it sounds too close to that word for me to leave it up there

If there is a good source, older than today (6 Oct) then i'll happily reinstate it

Nano/nan0gender[edit source]

I see some posts that indicate it was created by transmedicalists as a joke, then reclaimed as an actual nonbinary identity. (1 2 3 4. I didn't want to add this on the page though because it already has two people listed who coined it and IDK if those are the transmeds or the people who decided to reclaim it. --TXJ (talk) 18:19, 9 June 2020 (UTC)

Maybe it can be added anyway with a "some people claim that it was created by transmedicalists and was then reclaimed by the Tumblr nonbinary community"? --Ondo (talk) 19:03, 9 June 2020 (UTC)

Juxera[edit source]

I can't see the "juxera" heading. Why? 2A02:A312:C742:AF80:EDC4:2269:6FE1:80AA 21:18, 5 September 2021 (UTC)

seemed to be a missed close tag, thanks for pointing it out! Amazingakita (talk) 21:44, 5 September 2021 (UTC)

Niveigender[edit source]

Hi, could someone with permissions please add niveigender to the list? It's already in the wiki on the Xenogenders page, and according to the census cited there, it's definitely uncommon. Thanks! --Mossy (talk) 00:56, 20 September 2021‎ (UTC)

nevermind, I got the perms and added it myself! --Mossy (talk) 21:26, 27 September 2021‎ (UTC)

Apogender[edit source]

Could someone add Apogender to the list? It's already on the Gender Wiki, and it would be awesome if it were here too! Apogender wiki

Salmacian[edit source]

Can this be updated?

Meaning: As originally defined by Carter, "A term for male-to-intersex and female-to-intersex transsexuals." A reference to the myth of the deity Hermaphroditus and the nymph Salmacis.[130] Current usage is "people who desire a mixed genital set (for example, a penis and a vagina)"[cite1] Synonyms: bigenital, aphrodisian.[131][132] See also altersex.
