I’m trying to understand the differences between maverique, agender, gender neutral, and neutrois. What does being a maverique feel like to you and how does it differ from the other terms? I know what these terms MEAN, but not how these genders are EXPERIENCED.
everyone has their own unique experience with gender, so there is no one “maverique experience”, “agender experience”, etc. what being maverique feels like to me isn’t necessarily going to match how other maveriques feel.
that disclaimer aside, some links that may help you:
- “maverique: why i coined the word” – where i talk about why i stopped identifying as neutrois, how being maverique feels to me and how that differs from being gender neutral or genderless.
- “goodbye neutrois, hello maverique” – video version of the above
- “how is maverique distinct from agender?” – where i respond to an ask about the difference between being maverique and agender.
since i’m not agender, gender neutral or neutrois, any comparison that i make between those genders and maverique is nothing more than an opinion that i have based on definitions that i’ve read and things that i’ve heard from people who are those genders.
sorry if my inevitably one-sided opinion / experience doesn’t help you much, anon. anyone reading this is more than welcome to add onto this with your own opinion / experience.
