Or, as those of us with genders linked to sports call them, nerds.

History of the term

Technogender was coined was coined on September 9, 20141 by tumblr user enbyoid. It is defined as "when you may or may not have gendered feelings, but either way you feel a stronger connection with technology as part of your gender experience than you do with any other existing genders
can be used as a standalone term (“I am technogender”), as a prefix (technoboy, technogirl, technoenby, etc), or as an additive on another gender experience even (“ai is a technogender demiboy”)…coined with techkin in mind but if it fits you and you’re not, you’re still welcome to use it."2
Three later definitions are:

  • "Described as one who is only comfortable with one’s own gender when using technology, usually because of social anxiety. (source: pride-flags-for-us)
  • A gender described as someone who identifies with technology, as though they were not human, but instead machine.
  • Those that are only comfortable with one’s gender when using technology/online, usually because of social anxiety (Specialized for people with anxiety disorders)."3

The flag was created on July 4, 2016 by tumblr user technogendered.4

MOGAI-Watch Poem

Technogender

My gender is a microwave
with one second still to go
before my internal hot pocket
gets so hot it explodes.

But test me with your attitude
or tantrums that you throw,
and my timer will tick down to naught
and the hot pocket will blow.
