Let’s talk Agender. (First Post)

It’s safe to say that most of us have a basic understanding of the four letters than in “LGBT”. But what about the other sexual and gender identities that help make up the community? Throughout the next month, I will be going over some of the lesser known identities. 🌈 (UPDATE: this was before “Operation:Iris started and this became a long term project.)

You may have heard the term “Asexual” (having no sexual attraction), but what about “Agender”? A person who is Agender doesn’t fall into any category of “gender”. The most common pronouns for an Agender individual are “they/them”. Also, any gendered phrases, such as, “yeah, man” “thanks, hun” or “dude” may trigger dyphoria in Agender individuals.

So what’s the difference between Non-Binary, Androgyny, and Agender? Non-Binary is an umbrella term meaning anyone who fits outside of the typical “male/female” genders. Androgyny is typically used as a term to describe looking neither male/female and is not typically used as a gender identity. Whereas Agender is a gender identity meaning “no gender” and falls under the Non-Binary umbrella. ☂
