agender flag

so, what is agender?
this may be the question most of you wonder about which ended up leading you to this carrd! agender is someone who does not identify with any sort of gender. agender can essentially be translated to “without gender”. someone who is agender may identify as being genderless, having no gender, being gender neutral, having no label or gender, a gender just simply being a person, etc. agender people can consider themselves as non-binary, trans, both or neither and just simply go by agender!

wait... so what is nonbinary?
non-binary, also sometimes spelt as nonbinary (short forms include n.b, n-b, nby, and enby) is an umbrella term which covers all identities which fit outside the binary, however, non-binary can be an identity in itself!! someone who is non-binary does not have to have another identity and can just simply say they are non-binary as they do not fit within the gender binarys! non-binary is not a third gender. to learn more about non-binary see this carrd!

aren’t all nonbinary people agender?
NO! there are many different non-binary identities, examples of some include genderfluid, bigender, demigender, genderflux, and much more! there are even identifies like agenderflux (a subset of genderflux) where one feels as if they have no particular gender as well as fluctuating between masculine and feminine! to see more gender identities check here!

so.. wait, what’s the difference?
nonbinary, as i explained, is a spectrum of gender identities that are not exclusively male or female, aka being outside of the binary. agender is an identity which falls under this spectrum and umbrella, being an identity where one has no gender. both agender and nonbinary can coexist, while also being identities within themselves. someone may identify as agender and nonbinary, or only as one! not everyone who is nonbinary is agender. they are two separate and different things.

so... what pronouns do agender people use?
agender people can use whatever pronouns they like! some may use they/them, she/her, he/him, no pronouns, neopronouns or a mix! remember that pronouns do not always equal gender and that agender (as well as all non-binary people) can use whichever pronouns they like! and remember to ask what pronouns they use!! do not assume!

agender flag

so if i like someone who is agender does
that mean i’m bi/pan now?
NO! as i mentioned previously, non-binary is NOT a third gender just as agender would also not be considered a third gender. non-binary people have been included in every sexuality and just because someone is agender that does not mean you would be bi/pan. agender people can also be lesbian, gay, straight, whichever they chose. they do not have to be bi/pan because they are agender because as i’ve said, it is not a third gender.

how can an agender person be lesbian/gay/straight?
gender is a spectrum and in simple forms there is the male alignment side, the female alignment side and the middle which would be known as unaligned. lesbians are female-aligned or unaligned people who are attached to other female-aligned or unaligned people, just like gay people are male-aligned or unaligned people who like other male-aligned or unaligned people.

aren’t all agender people asexual/aromantic?
NO! agender, asexual and aromantic are all three different things. asexual and aromantic have to do with your sexual attraction and romantic attraction whereas agender has to do with your gender identity, which are all three completely different things. they have similar names, however they are different. agender people can be asexual, aromantic, both or neither however not all agender people are asexual/aromantic.

what is the flag that’s all over this carrd
and what does it mean?
the flag your seeing is the agender flag! it was created by tumblr user transrants! the black and white stripes represent the absence of gender, the grey stripes represent people who have partial absence of gender and the green stripe in the middle is the inverse of the colour purple, which is often used to represent a combination of genders, so inverting it represents the negation of that.
