Gender Wiki

Pangender is a non-binary and multigender identity with many definitions:

  1. One identifies as every gender it’s possible for them to be; an alternate name for this definition is maxigender.
  2. One identifies as the entire gender spectrum they can be of any given spectrum(s).
  3. One identifies all genders available to them (within their culture & life experiences).
  4. One has an immense and/or uncountable number of genders.
  5. One identifies as infinite genders within their own culture and life experience.
  6. One's gender experience goes beyond the known genders within their own culture and life experience; this definition is similar to ultigender.
  7. One identifies as both binary genders and all known and unknown genders within their own culture and life experience; this definition is similar to ultigender.
  8. One identifies as polygender and more genders within their own culture and life experience.
  9. One's gender is very expansive and unspecific, meaning that there are countless genders with no maximum limit. It may be described as being an infinite spectrum.

Under any and all of these definitions, a pangender person. being may shift between identities over time in a fluid/flux/fluix way or feel as though they have one all encompassing identity that is static (unchanging). 

Being pangender does not require that one knows everything about all established genders, just that their identity includes countless genders simultaneously or over time.
