Pocgender

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.
