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).

MOGAI-Watch Poem

Nullagender

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.

I am not trans nor nb
but I’m still not fucking cis–
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.

¿Gender

I started learning Spanish
in the 11th grade,
and though I got all Cs and Ds,
a great discovery I made–

Three hundred years or more ago,
an ancestor passed through Texas
making all my family since
honorary Latinxs.

And now with the rise of Tumblr
and these great MOGAI IDs,
I’ve found the gender that
I was always meant to be.

I am ¿gender–
don’t tell me my gender’s baseless!
If you find it funny,
you’re ¿phobic and you’re racist.
