Absorgender is a Relationship-Based Gender defined as "a gender that is what the genders of those around you are. As you are around more people, even if some leave, they continue to add to the genders you feel. You stay the genders that you have taken in until you hit a max of some sort. At that point you become like a blank slate, being only one gender (it doesn’t have to be agender or neutral, it can be any gender and the base gender can be different each time)."1

I’m a little gender sponge,
my term is easy to define:
I assume other peoples’ genders
and pitch a fit if they assume mine.
