  • Asexual: Having no /sexual attraction/ to others; having no desire to have sex.

  • Cisgender: Someone who identifies as the gender that they were assigned as at birth. (ex. matches their birth certificate) Often shortened to cis

  • Nonbinary: Outside of the gender binary of male and female. (Can be used as an umbrella term or as its own identity)
  • Genderqueer: Outside of the gender binary. (**This is not an umbrella term like the post said before I edited it! Do not use this as an umbrella term for nonbinary individuals, simply use 'nonbinary'. Queer is considered a slur and not everyone likes to be associated with the word)

  • Bigender: Someone who identifies as two separate genders.
  • Trigender: Someone who identifies as three separate genders.

  • Amab/Afab: Same as dmab/dmab, except with 'assigned' instead of 'designted'.
  • Camab/Cafab: Same as previous, except prefixed by 'coercively', to highlight the lack of choice.
  • Reblog to inform! And if there's any I missed or anything that should be clarified, please message me! Always looking to expand the proper vocab. : )
