Arsenogender is a fancy way of saying you have no idea what you're talking about defined as "a masculine gender that has been altered or affected by toxic masculinity in some way. It can make the individual with the gender feel conflicting feelings about their maleness and/or masculinity, or feel that they no longer feel a connection to the masculine parts of their identity because of how toxic masculinity has affected them. Arsen- is a Greek root meaning "male", and it is also the etymological origin of arsenic, which is toxic."1
