Here’s what the flag colours mean:
Red, Green, Blue & Purple: The spectrum of different neurotypes and gender identities that neurodivergent individuals have
Black: Aromantic and Asexual spectrums
Infinity Symbol: Neurodiversity

Neurogender is both a standalone MOGAI gender and a category that encompasses all genders that are tied to one’s mental illness. For the purposes of this wiki, the closely-related category Vitiumgender (physical illness) has been included in this section, as well.
This is one of the longest sections, and one of the absolute worst (in terms of genders, though the poems might also be atrocious. Get back to me). I guess it makes sense that it would be so: there’s traditionally a lot of overlap between the self-diagnosis crowd and the MOGAI community. Many if not most have a slew of self-diagnosed (and, to be fair, pro-diagnosed) disorders displayed proudly on their about pages like that tells anyone anything more meaningful than what class of drugs they’re likely to be taking.
Whoring out real or fabricated mental health issues for pats on the back: I just don’t feel like this is what people mean when they call for intersectional movements.

Note that this is not a distress that comes solely from uncertainty, but is a gender experience that necessarily involves an anxious/panicked/distressed sense of one’s own gender. The experiencer is therefore at odds with their gender, and this is the only thing they can know for certain, even if they can approximate what else their gender encompasses.
This is dissimilar to questioning or quoigender because it necessarily entails a dissatisfaction with one’s inability to fully grasp their gender. It is NOT just “IDK my gender” or “my gender is IDK”; it’s “I’m disappointed that I don’t know my gender because some emotional barrier is in the way, but I’d still like a term that describes that experience.”
The name comes from the Latin for adversary/enemy to illustrate how one always feels at odds with their gender due to it being just beyond reach.
