Pangender

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search

Pangender people are those who feel they identify as all genders. The term has a great deal of overlap with genderqueer and trigender.[1][2] Because of its all-encompassing nature, presentation and pronoun usage varies between different people who identify as pangender. Some people who identify as pangender seek to transition.

Pangender can be considered a 'problematic' or incorrect term; as it is impossible to associate with every gender in existence, if spiritual and cultural genders such as Two-spirit and Hijra are included. People who identify as pangender might more accurately be speaking of a desire or willingness to include aspects of any and/or all genders in their lives, rather than making a claim that they associate with every gender which exists.
