Impediogender is an Audiogender defined as "a nonbinary gender which is most often subdued or silent, but becomes more intense whenever it is challenged or one is in a situation in which their gender makes things more difficult, such as when faced with a form that only allows binary gender options to be checked.
E.g. If you’re non-binary and feel it mildly, but if you’re given a form where you have to check ‘male’ or ‘female’, your feeling of NBness spikes up. Impedio- coming from the Latin ‘hinder, obstruct’."1

I’m a total pacifist,
it’s my gender that is violent–
in challenging situations,
it just won’t be kept silent.
