Study of sexuality and gender in paganism

After the survey you will find a small glossary with some definitions of gender identities and sexual orientations to make it easier and clearer to answer.

Cisgender: refers to both men and women. It’s a term used to describe people whose gender identity and biological gender match.

Transgender: refers to both men and women. It’s a term used to describe people whose gender identity and biological gender do not match.

Bigender: is a term used to describe people who identify with the masculine and feminine gender either simultaneously or alternately.

Flowing gender: it is understood that an individual is of fluid gender when it is not identified with a single gender identity, but circulates among several. It is often understood as a changing state in which the person will not always feel like man, woman, neutral or any other kind of gender, can even feel belonging to several at a time.

Agender: is an identity in which the person is not identified with any gender. The person is not considered within the definitions or stipulations given to any gender and feels the need to establish themselves in a gender identity located as null.

Pangender: it is an identity in which all the identities of gender are located, but in a fixed and non-variable way as in the fluid genre.

Two spirits: it is a concept native to Native American peoples. The term two spirits usually implies that a male and a female spirit coexist in the same body and therefore have patterns of behavior associated with the masculine and feminine genders.

Third gender: is a term used to refer to a person who is not classified within the male / female gender identity, but as a mixture of the two or at a neutral point between them. A person of the third genus may have a physical expression that relates to a particular genus or combination of both genres, involving gender discordance or a type of gender transition.

Intergender: it is a gender identity that describes those who do not consider themselves cisgénero. They define themselves as a non-normative gender that does not fit the established frameworks.
