Geniegender (or geniegirl/genieboy) is a mythologender defined as "when a person is trapped in a state where they have to present a certain gender(usually male or female) for whatever reason, similar to a genie trapped in a lamp, however they wish they could be the free and undefined gender they feel inside. They often publicly go by the pronouns she/her and he/him but would prefer to go by another set of pronouns. Example being [the coiner], geniegirl. [They] present female for [their] family and [their] society but [they] would prefer to go by they/them in a gender that is undefinable."1

History of the term

Geniegender was coined on June 10, 2019 by tumblr user saejsystem via tumblr user lovemogai. The flag was created at the same time.2
Because the coiner chose not to disclose their race, two other pro-MOGAI tumblr users (at least one of whom is white) condemned this term as racist.3

variant-archive reblogged this from lovemogai and added:
I’m… concerned this might be lowkey racist but. I’m white

alexjbrimmer said: I’m with you on the possibly racist thing. Usually if it’s a label using culture-specific things, there would be a disclaimer saying that the coiner is not white or that white people should not use it.
