POCgender is a category of MOGAI genders which encompasses all genders that are tied to one’s status as a Person of Color (or to one’s ethnicity).
I just feel like there has to be an easier way to let everyone know your political stances. Meaningful activism? Nah, not separatist and edgy enough. Better make up a gender instead.

History of the term

POCgender was coined by MOGAI-Watch as a way to categorize all MOGAI genders based on race/culture/ethnicity.

Colonizing Western fucks
are the sole creators
of binary gender systems
enforced by white dictators.

But all non-white cultures
are accepting to a T;
I have the moral high ground:
I’m antibinary.

I’m 1/32nd Cherokee, so I’m a POC.
Stick your white genders up your ass,
don’t force your binary on me.

There’s not a single other race
where gender’s split (largely) in two—
it’s not like non-western langauges
have binary words/pronouns, too.

No, the white man has enslaved us
with his gender machinations,
and forced “male” and “female” on the masses
when he colonized our nations.

Moses, Ramses, and Muhammad,
none could be male-gendered—
they weren’t white, so obviously
culture has misremembered.

I am not trans nor nb

do you have any inkling
how colonialist gender is?
Even though my ancestors
worshipped gendered gods
The west invented gender–
I read it on a blog.

Draoidhe

Draoidhe Flag
Image Unavailable

Draoidhe (’droo-iy’, from the scottish gaidhlig word for ‘druid’) is a POCgender defined as " is a nonbinary gender characterised by a connection to nature, art, and spirituality in the context of ancient and modern celtic culture. what these three things mean is up to the draoidhe to decide according to their own experience of being a nonbinary celt. as it stands this label is only for people from the celtic nations. it represents a reclamation and reconstruction of a culture and history that we continue to struggle for against western imperialism. if you don’t have the lived experience of being a celt, you don’t have the cultural context to fully understand this term."1

History of the term

Draoidhe was coined on or before January 12, 20182 by tumblr user vagabond-sun via queer-buccaneers.3 The flag was created at the same time.

Background from the coiner

so i’ve long held the personal theory that ‘druid’ might have been a spiritual third-gender role in ancient celtic society. they had a discrete set of roles, expected character traits and style of dress from other, typical men and women. druid was a ‘class’ of person that the celts believed were inherently better seers, advisors, judges, poets, etc, than the other classes of people. people who became druids were usually picked for an inborn spiritual capacity they seemed to have, and two decades of their early life were dedicated to giving them the skills they needed to utilize that. even if it was not factually considered so at the time, i think there are more than enough reasons that it makes sense to view it through that lens now. i feel as a scottish, pagan, nonbinary person i have the right to extrapolate on this phenomenon as it relates to my identity, especially because of the absolute dearth of accurate information on the celts that has survived due to imperialism. i have never felt a pull to celtic neopaganism, but the historical accounts of the druids feel to me like a window into a culture that i ought to still be part of today. so i’ve taken things into my own hands

I reclaim my culture
by extrapolating that
which there is zero evidence of;
my feelings trump the facts.

Yes, I’m living proof of
anthropological politicization–
all those who use my made-up term
must hail from Celtic nations.

Fengender

Fengender Flag
Image Unavailable
The designer picked the blue-purple color since it’s an ambiguous color (represent nonbinary) and its a nontraditional color for an element. The classic Chinese elements are fire, earth, wood, metal, and water. The colors for these are traditionally red, yellow, green, white, and black respectively. Hence, wind/air isn't considered one of the elements in Chinese culture, and blue and purple aren't used as traditional colors.

Fengender is a POCgender defined as "a gender like the wind, playful, fickle and all over the place.
This term is exclusive to Chinese people."1

History of the term

Fengender was coined on February 23, 20172 by anonymous via tumblr blog Ask-Pride-Color-Schemes. The flag was created on that date by Pride-Flags on Deviantart.3

My gender is as fickle

Genderhu

Genderhu Flag
Image Unavailable
Flag meaning: 胡 (hu) is one of the characters used for the name of an instrument, 二胡 (erhu). It is basically a type of guitar, but with just two strings. Since this gender is supposed to be described as music, this is mostly likely where the term came from. The flag here reflects that, being two long dark bars representing the two strings. The background is red since that is a common color in china for luck and happiness, and the character 胡 (hu) being in yellow to represent freedom, in this case freedom from the gender binary!

Genderhu is a POCgender defined as "kind of like a musical feel to it, a flow like a ribbon floating down in the sky. Peaceful calm flows and vibes as a gender.
This term is exclusive to Chinese people."1

History of the term

Genderhu was coined on or before February 26, 2017 by anonymous. The flag was created at the same time.2

Now it’s summer and I am done
with Modern Chinese 1001.
To celebrate, here’s what I’ll do:
I’ll coin the gender “genderhu”!

Since there’s Chinese in the word,
it would be racist and absurd
for non-Chinese to have usage rights
(although I myself am white).

But luckily, none will abuse it;
no one likes it enough to use it.

Indigender

Indigender Flag
Image Unavailable
Color meanings: Basically the purple [blue?] represents the culture gender that is closest to your gender, and the yellow representing your actual gender adjacent to it.

Indigender is a POCgender defined as "Specific to people of indigenous cultures with culture-specific gender identities.
A gender identity that is related to, or adjacent to, a gender specific to one’s culture, but that does not fit all roles or aspects of that gender."1

History of the term

Indiegender was coined on or before July 20, 2017 by anonymous. The flag was created at the same time.2

My great grandma was half Cherokee,
or so the stories say,
but white people surround me
and trigger me each day.

They all call me “she” and “her”
‘cause they don’t fucking care
that gender’s European and
was exported from over there.

To feel closer to my roots,
I choose Indigender,
Don’t you point out I’m mostly white,
you fucking KKK defender.

Laogender

Laogender Flag
Image Unavailable
The character 老 (lao, which means old or ancient) in white, over a background that consists of 3 vertical bars: a dark grey in the middle, and two light grey on the sides. grey is used to represent ancientness, and with the dark grey bar is meant to look like abstract ancient pillar, in a sense. White is used to represent peace, as in peace with your gender identity in this case.

Laogender is a POCgender defined as "a selection of ancient gender identities from China that were destroyed by westerners. Old, mature and immortal.
This term is exclusive to Chinese people."1

History of the term

Laogender was coined on February 26, 20172 by anonymous. The flag was created at the same time by Pride-Flags/Pride-Color-Schemes3

I promise that Laogender
existed before today–
it was yet another thing
with which Europe did away;

Don’t you try to google it–
you should just accept my claim–
and it’s racist if you ask me why
I gave an old gender a new name.

I give tragedy a human face,
for trans-ethnic life I must embrace.
Nekogendered I appear,
with fake whiskers, tail, and pointy ears;
I lick my own butt and I have fleas–
but the one thing I’m not is Japanese.

Really, fuck my parents
for ever reproducing
they forced western gender on me
I don’t recall ever choosing.

I’m cis, white, and western,
but I don’t want to be,
I’d rather be from somewhere
where it is gender-free.

You say humans have always
had gendered divisions?
I could not be less into
your whitesplained revisions.

I ignore Egypt’s gendered gods
and gendered skin tone paintings
I’m fucking nullagendered;
I deny my cis-ness by abstaining.
