Transgender sports debate

There has been an ongoing debate about transgender people: “Should trans people be allowed to participate in sports?”

The transgender sports debate is a big question because some people believe that transgender athletes have advantages over cisgender athletes, most notably trans women.


When 16 year old transgender athlete Verónica Garcia won a 400 m race, she was immediately booed, and left ‘hurt’ by the lack of support and compassion.

Garcia has spoken out against transphobia and rude anti-trans comments, as well as urge people to be kind and respectful.


What’s the whole point of campaigning against trans athletes participating in the Olympics if you wish for your country to win LOTS of medals?!

Overall, transphobia is a form of downright stupi…

uhh help please-

Hello! Uhh, so I have a question- is there an identity that is defined similarly to this?

Basically, I love reading romance, and romance that is done well is great, But when I think of myself being in a romantic relationship; kissing, holding hands, it makes me uncomfortable. I don't want romance in my life, nor do I want sex. (I know I'm either Asexual or Apothisexual). I like some romance, in fiction at least- but when it's in real life, it's tiring and repetitive.

is there something like this?

Any help is greatly appreciated, email isn't verified yet so I can't reply. just know it'll be something like "Thank you so much omg".

Thanks again!

- Jayden (he/she/they)

putting this here so I don't lose my CUIN article

  • 1 Culturally Specific In Nature (CUIN)
    • 1.1 Exclusivity of cuingenders
    • 1.2 Types of cuingenders
    • 1.3 Specifications of Cuingenders
    • 1.4 The Case for Cuingenders


Culturally Specific in Nature (CUIN, CUSIN, CSIN) is an umbrella term that refers to genders that embody or relate to cultures or sub-cultures in the real world. Cuingender is a xenogender borne from the CUIN concept. Cuingender can be used as a further umbrella term or can be used as a standalone gender.


Unlike most xenogenders, there is a degree of exclusivity associated with specific cuingenders. Due to concerns around cultural appropriation, it is generally not acceptable for everyone to use just any cuingender. One must be part of or have a close affiliation with a given culture to use its asso…

Updates to citation templates

Helloooo fellow LGBTQIA+ Wiki-ans! We've made some big changes in the resulting appearances of using our ' and ' templates. The input has only minor changes, but the output for reading those references... it's a new and hopefully better look! Here's an overview of what's different and why. Please reach out if you have any questions or want to give us feedback.

Editors, check out the two new parameters, speaker and detail, and the change from work to site for online content.


If you're new to editing on our wiki but have edited on others, you'll probably notice these templates don't look like the ones on other wikis. The parameters have different names, the templates themselves aren't the same names, and the results aren't what you'll see in academic o…

LGBTQIA+ Celebs

LGBTQIA+ is an interesting topic to talk about, for many reasons. It might feel embarrassing or it might make you feel depressed or uncomfortable in a situation. Thankfully, you (probably) aren’t a celebrity. You might think that coming out is hard, and as a closeted person, I can confirm that, but celebrities are on a much bigger fame level than you, so a lot of people who are LGBTQIA+ celebrities are closeted, but here are some that took it to the media.

  1. Noah Schnapp came out on a TikTok video.
  2. Bravo broadcaster Andy Cohen is gay.
  3. Famous actor Elliott Page is transgender
  4. Former baseball player and the first person to invent the high five, Glenn Burke, was gay.
  5. Billie Eilish came out during a recent meeting.

Disappointed with Staff

If my polls and blogs are just gonna get deleted without any notice, warning, message or comment, what's the point of having the option to write them? As a fellow admin from another wiki I would expect some amount of acknowledgement, not for being an admin but for being in an allegedly community focused space.

WIll you delete this one too?

An Example on Wiki Sources

I haven't been as active on this wiki as I would like, but I'm here today to present something that I think would be helpful to a lot of users: An example post about the types of sources that can and cannot be used on this wiki! At least from what I understand. This is meant to be a useful guide to help explain why certain types of sources are allowed and why others are not. Also, think of this as an extension to the wiki's Sourcing Policy with specific examples of what is and isn't a good source.

I really do hope this will help users (especially new users) better understand why we need to take sourcing and references more seriously, especially on a wiki like this. So feel free to comment with feedback, whether or not you found it helpful o…

My gender identity

I need help figuring out my gender identity.

I don’t feel male nor female and I’m definitely under the non-binary umbrella, I feel the strong need for gender but my gender isn’t fluid. I don’t identify with androgyne, girlflux, boyflux, non-binary, trans, genderfluid, agender etc. I need a gender that sticks. I don’t feel agender or gendervoid, I’ve been through many titles in the past such as, non-binary, trans, agender etc. I was born a female and have feminine features (I’m okay with that) and dress very neutral, but I don’t feel neutrois or non-binary. I’m very influenced to frogs, fairycore and mushrooms and a coyote therian and lesbian (if it helps at all) .(ㆀ˘・з・˘)

(PS. if you do help or have an identity in mind, thank you so much!)

Another Pride Month

Ah. Another Pride Month is upon us.

Another month of corporations making their logos rainbow.

Alas. Alas.

I play a game called Second Life and there's Rainbow Capitalism here, too. Every creator is making rainbow things, or things with rainbow flags, lesbian flags, bi flags, pan flags, genderqueer flags, the progress pride flag, and the ace flag and that's it. No gay men's flag, no aromantic flag, no demisexual flag, the list goes on and on.

Meanwhile I am running in circles trying to finish the newest editions to my comprehensive pride flag collection. It doesn't really include much from microlabels or anything like that but I've found an upwards of forty flags.

But... you can tell which creators are just lazy or not informed and which ones re…

DON'T SAY THIS

So, when I was like, eleven, I have this friend who I'm just gonna call Susie. So, Susie was gay, and my other friend (who I'm gonna call Bob) didn't like Susie. So, my coming out to Bob bacially went like this,

Me: So, Bob, I think I might like girls as well as boys.

Bob: Mm. Don't turn out like Susie.

And then Bob walked away. Okay, people. I'm just gonna say that if somebody is a bad person, and they're gay, that doesn't mean that all gay people are bad. Just don't be a jerk, people.

Omniromantic

So, I just came out to a homophobic "friend". I said to them,

"I'm omniromantic, which means that I'm attracted to people regardless of gender, but I have preferences. For instance, an omni person might prefer boys-"

"Oh, so you're almost straight? Thank god!"

No. Just, no. Also, I don't prefer boys. That was an example.

Choosing A Name

(note: this blog is a work in progress)

I've noticed a fair amount of posts asking for help in choosing a name, so I decided to make a blog post about it. So if you're here from me linking to it in reply to your post (or even others linking to it), hello! In this post I list many factors you might want to consider while choosing a name. I don't want this post to seem overwhelming, however, so I want to stress that you don't have to think about all these factors, or even any of them! If something doesn't apply to you or isn't important, skip it! If you find a name that you like without much thought, that's alright. You don't have to think a whole lot about choosing a name, although some people do. Some people don't know where to start or mig…

Coming Out Tips

Coming out is a very individual choice and process. You do not have to come out if you don't want to and you do not have to come out if you're not ready. Coming out can also be very different based on identity. For example, coming out as gay comes with different challenges than coming out as transgender. Some people may be more receptive to some identities rather than others, potentially out of ignorance. Since many people on this wiki are children, this will be targeted towards younger ages. If there's any questions you have or anything you'd like me to add, don't hesitate to leave a comment.


  • 1 Safety
  • 2 Readiness
  • 3 Order
  • 4 Method
  • 5 Timing
  • 6 Self-care
  • 7 Resources (more to be added)


First, you should never come out if it is unsafe, such as if you'll be kic…

About Otherkin, and my POV with it

I want to talk about otherkin, as well as my current experience with it (as limited as it is, so far).

For those who don't know what otherkin is, this is the simplest current definition: an individual who's inner identity relates to or embodies that of an animal (usually).


  • 1 Backstory (on my part)
  • 2 My Thoughts on Otherkin
  • 3 How I'd Define "Soul"
  • 4 Finishing Thoughts and POV
    • 4.1 "If you're a dragon, then why don't you act like one?"
    • 4.2 "What's it like being a dragon living in a human body?"
    • 4.3 Others? Like me?


Now, before I actually talk more about my thoughts and POV, let me throw in a little bit of my own backstory (you can skip it if you want, it only adds to how my experience developed).

Quite recently (almost a month ago), I figured out why I always fe…

Common Xenogender Categories and Identities

I'm making this blog post as a sort of introduction to more specific xenogender identities. Here I will explain some broad categories/umbrella terms for xenogenders, and then go over a few of the most common xenogenders. Granted, these will be "most common" based off my own experiences and observations. So obviously this won't be covering every possible xenogender, this is intended as more of an introduction than anything. Honestly, I think it might be worthwhile to run a survey specifically for xenogenders, but I'll go over that idea at the end of this post.

My hope is that, at some point in the future, there'll be enough research and published information out there that we could put a "Examples of Xenogender Identities" on this wiki's xenog…

Transphobia in dating preferences

This topic has been up for some debate for a while, and there doesn't yet seem to be a sound conclusion. So, I would like to give my thoughts on this as a transgender person with a transgender girlfriend. This is a touchy subject, so I'm going to handle it with as much care as possible to avoid my words being minced. It's time to answer the age-old (just kidding; it's relatively recent) question of: "Is it transphobic not to date a trans person?"

Short answer: it depends. But you didn't come here for a short answer. We're going to take a deep dive into transphobia and transphobic biases in dating preferences. Take care to fasten your seatbelts, because I have a feeling this is going to be a long one.

Gender modality

Gender modality describes the relation of one's gender identity to one's gender assigned at birth.


Gender identity refers to the gender one identifies as. This differs from gender modality, which is terminology used to describe one's gender in relation to their birth assignment. Two people may have the same gender identity, yet have different gender modalities. For example, a cisgender woman and a transgender woman both have the same gender identity (woman), but have differing gender modalities (cisgender and transgender).

Gender Euphoria

Let's start off with a definition. Gender euphoria is the opposite of gender dysphoria. Euphoria is "the strong feeling of joy when one’s gender is being respected and affirmed, whether through outward presentation that is being read correctly, through representation, or through inward acceptance of one’s own gender. Like dysphoria, it can come in many forms."

I think gender euphoria is not talked about enough. While dysphoria is important, it can be helpful to focus on positive aspects of transitioning or being trans, which can even help with dysphoria. I personally experience both dysphoria and euphoria and try to practice body neutrality. Whenever I feel dysphoric, I try to think of one thing which will make me feel euphoria. Because I t…

An Informal Discussion on the Agender Spectrum

Disclaimer that I do have a sandboxed article in development for the agender spectrum, but that's hit a roadblock due to lack of recognition outside of social media. Even when I do find something, it's grouped with the ace and aro spectra, and usually one of the other two gets talked about more, unfortunately.

This isn't intended to be a replacement source or anything, this is more me venting about how little recognition the agender spectrum gets by itself, even though it gets mentioned a lot alongside acespec and arospec. Also just going over concepts and ideas about the agender spectrum, to let people know what I'm trying to look for.

Suffice to say, I won't be putting too many links or sources here. This is a very informal discussion. Anyt…

Other Interesting Identities in the LGBTQIA+ Community

This little blog post is to help showcase identities in the LGBTQIA+ community that may not exactly have enough info or usage to warrant a full page, but for one reason or another they mean a lot to me and/or my friends. There could be enough sources to have them be subsections in existing pages, but that will have to take some extra research. Plus, who knows, maybe this will help people figure things out about themselves!

To help prevent hosting images on this wiki that probably won't be used in an article anytime soon, I won't upload any flags mentioned here. However, I will be making sure to provide sources, and especially archive links. Probably won't put them in the formal cite templates, just links. So if an identity interests you, pl…

Queer gender alignment


Queer gender alignments are gender alignments specifically tied to queerness and/or non-conformity. This is not a specific gender alignment system, but is intended to be an expansion upon currently existing gender alignment terms (such as man-aligned or feminine-aligned). These terms can be used to describe identities, people, or general terminology.

    • 1.2 Terminology

Queer-aligned gender identities include any gender identity that is influenced by one's queerness and/or non-conformity, or any gender experience that aligns with queerness and/or non-conformity. This is a useful term for individuals who cannot define or describe their gender in traditional ter…

I know some people are concerned about the ocean vincian flag, so...

TLDR: The rumors about the flag/its creator being transphobic, enbyphobic, transmedicalist, lesbophobic, racist, exclusionist, sexist, etc. are all false. Please don't spread rumors.

The flag is known by many names, and has no official title, He does not engage in lesbian discourse because he feels it is not his place and want to be respectful towards the lesbian community.


Please do not spread these rumors, even if you're doing it "just in case they're true." It harms more people than it helps. If there's anything I missed or neglected to mention, please let me know!

its abt neopronouns and nounself pronouns or mainly just any pronouns. people telling someone their pronouns and that person still uses different pronouns on that person is not ok. (example if u dont get it vv)

person 1: "uhm … my pronouns are he/it/pup !!" person 2: "oh okay." 'next time' person 2: "oh yea, she went over there." *talking bout this happens to people and i hate when people misgender others. especially when people use nounself pronouns, (and just nonself pronouns) other people may say 'they arnot real' 'you cant use those' 'cat/catself ? thats stupid. xD'

and most people who are xenogenders may use nounself pronouns. like me, im catgender and use cat releated pronouns. but anyone can use nounself pronouns.

Egogender is a gender identity in which one one identifies simply as oneself, or as a gender which is exclusive to them. The flag was made per the request of an anonymous Tumblr user. The stripe meanings are as follows:

  • Purple: Individuality
  • Blue: Peace and understanding
  • Yellow: Clarity


Egogender individuals may be assumed to be inherently genderless. However, while some egogender individuals may consider themselves to be genderless, this is not always the case. An egogender indi…
