a guide to catgenderism written by catgenders, for catgenders and non-catgenders alike!

What is Catgender?

Catgender is a xenogender used by individuals who identify as/strongly connect with cats and felines. It is used to describe a gender that feels feline. Catgender individuals can still identify as a binary gender while being catgender. If someone feels female in a feline sense, they would be a catgender girl. Catgender was created by a mentally ill autistic individual to better define nya’s gender experience, but anyone may identify as catgender.

I don’t get it.

That is what this carrd is here for! Xenogenders are genders that are usually used by autistic individuals to better describe their gender identity. Neurodivergence heavily influences the way one experiences gender identity, thus, people who are outside the aspectrum may not understand an autistic individual’s concept of gender. The denial/rejection of xenogenders is ableist and transphobic.

what’s the flag mean?

The solid pink and blue at the top and bottom of the flag represent feminine and masculine leaning catgender individuals. The light pink represents the feline feeling that comes with being catgender. The light blue represents gender nonconformity, and gender nonconforming catgender individuals.

but doesnt it make the trans community look like a joke?

Nope!! Because if someone’s transphobic, theyre not going to pick an choose which trans people they’re transphobic too. No matter what theyre still going to be transphobic wether ur trans binary, trans nonbinary, or an xenogender!!
