Shinygender is a fictigender defined as "a gender that is essentially the same as a particular gender, but it feels like your experience with that gender is “colored differently” from the majority of others who share your gender- you experience a gender very differently from others with that gender. For example, a shinyboy would feel at least somewhat a boy, but would be a boy or interpret their boyness in a unusual way. It isn’t a requirement to have a gender alignment that doesn’t match your gender, but it can definitely be the case of why a person would use this term.
Shiny- can be used as a gender prefix for any gender. For example, shinyneutral, shinyqueer, or shinynull.
(Yes, this is based on shiny pokémon.)"1
