Bigender (adj.)

Definition

  • Bigender is a gender identity that falls under the non-binary umbrella. To identify as bigender generally means you identify as two genders. You could identify as both at the same time. You can go back and forth between two genders. Perhaps you have one stagnant gender identity and one that shifts while still only identifying as two genders. However you experience it, it has to do something with the number two. It does not necessarily mean you identify as a man and a woman. There are more genders than that. 

Usage

Bigender is used as an adjective generally.

  • I’m bigender.
  • Oh my goodness, I just met the cutest person the other day. They’re bigender and like neutral pronouns. They’re into knitting and folk-punk. What a dreamboat.

    So this is how I identify now, but I go between androgynous and woman. I still use female pronouns, though.
