Did You Mean Gender-Nonconforming

Gender Non-Conforming Flag
Image Unavailable

All the genders in this category are fancy ways of saying you're Gender Non-conforming. According to the gender wiki, which is pro-MOGAI, Gender non-conforming describes anyone whose appearance and behaviour does not reflect the gender roles expected of them. Many transgender people, especially those who identify as non-binary and/or genderqueer, are seen as gender non-conforming. However, this term can also be applied to those with a cisgender gender identity who do not fit societal stereotypes of that gender [emphasis added]."1
