Fionagender is a Relationship-Based Gender defined as "when your gender only becomes truly fixed when you fall in love."1

History of the term

Fionagender was coined on or before October 28, 2014 by an anonymous submitter to MOGAI-Archive.2 While this was almost certainly a troll submission, the MOGAI community's lack of self-reflection caused it to be published on a major MOGAI blog.

MOGAI-Watch Poem

I was born a princess years ago
in a land far, far away,
and burdened with a fearful curse
that struck at sunset every day.

Only with true love’s first kiss
could my gender take steady form–
but then I’d be forever stuck
as a slave to gender norms.

Many stories have been penned
about breaking curses with a kiss,
for me, that’d be the worst curse of all–
because then I would be cis.
