[Random] Thoughts,  Gender[queer],  Queer[ness]


so i just stumbled upon a new gender that has recently been coined by someone else called “aporagender”.


Aporagender is a term newly coined, meaning a gender separate from male, female, and anything in between while still having a very strong and specific gendered feeling. I have a checklist for if your gender if aporagender:

  • Your sense of gender is stronger than that is “normal” (I hate saying normal to describe this but I can’t think of a better way to do it)
  • Your gender is completely and totally not male or female

and while i like it (it’s actually similar to the gender i’m coining, maverique), i agree with lithrobotics about the problematic wording.

wtf does having a sense of gender that’s stronger than “normal”, “average” whatever word you want to use even mean? this is highly presumptive, arbitrary and meaningless. sorry, creator of this word.

i also agree about the use of “checklist”. i didn’t coin this word so i can’t claim to know what the creator means/intends, but i feel like this could and should be worded better.

either way, i’ll continue developing maverique as a gender, but will keep an eye on this gender. while aporagender seems similar, i prefer what i have with maverique.
