Bordergender (or borderfluid) is a neurogender defined as "a fluctuating gender experienced exclusively by people with BPD. A gender identity lacking a firm grasp on ones identity, while still experiencing gender, to varying degrees, but having trouble pinning it down to just one label or identity. Having the sense of grasping at labels as much as possible to describe a gender we keep questioning because we keep second guessing our sense of selves and, consequentially, our sense of gender.
Can be combined with relevant genders.1"

History of the term

Bordergender was coined on or before December 31, 20142 by tumblr user izayaorihahaha3 (later antiqueapple on deviantart4). The flags were created before August 17, 2015, the originals by izayaorihahaha and edited versions by pastelmemer, aka Pride-Flags on Deviant-Art.[5][6][7][8]

The coiner, sensibly, no longer approves of the term and hopes that nobody uses it.

MOGAI-Watch Poem

Exagender

I seek MOGAI’s approval
because I’ve got BPD;
they suggested that this gender
might be right for me.

For although I feel I’m cis,
few have MOGAI anoint them
with a custom gender and
I’d hate to disappoint them.

I’m crazy into horses;
ponies and centaurs, too,
I know everything about horse-care:
how to groom and feed and shoe.

My gender reflects my passion,
it gallops through my heart;
But don’t feed it moldy hay,
or it will get the sharts.

Rouene (or Rouegender) is a neurogender defined as "when you have multiple genders due to being neurodivergent.
Examples:

  • Someone who has BPD and splits on their gender, becoming or identifying more strongly with another gender. They may still identify with their old gender, but since they’ve split on it they don’t want to be that gender anymore, though they may go back to it later.
  • Someone who is autistic and their special interest is gender(s), and they ‘collect’ genders, possibly due to being fascigender (a gender influenced by special interests).
  • Someone who, due to neurodivergency, has difficulty making decisions (e.g, autism, ADHD, DPD), and therefore can’t ‘decide’ what gender they are (i.e, can’t pinpoint it).
  • Someone who simply feels like their multigender-ness stems from being neurodivergent.

Pronounced roo-en-ee / roo-eh-gender. From rouen, an anagram of neuro-.1"
