Shipgender is a fictigender defined as "more like a group of genders than a gender itself. but basically the idea is that if you feel like your gender is related to a ship pairing then you’re shipgender!
For an example you start getting into danganronpa. you play the first game and you’re like wow I really love the pair kyouko and makoto togther I totally ship them! and then like you get into fanfic and fanart and all that good fandom stuff. and then you realize that maybe it’s not so much that you just like shipping these characters…. maybe you look at this ship and realize that’s you?? like that’s your gender. right there. so then your shipgender would be called naegirigender since the kyouko x makoto pairing is called naegiri."1

History of the term

Shipgender was coined on March 28, 2019 by tumblr user 'Hi' (coiner of the coric genders) via Beyond-MOGAI-Pride-Flags. The flag was created at the same time.2

MOGAI-Watch Poem

I ship Snape and Dobby,
I’ve penned fanfics galore;
and to prove my dedication,
I’ve done something more:

I’ve based my whole identity
upon this unholy pairing;
don’t police my gender—
your transphobia is wearing.
