Bigender

Pronunciation:
|bīˈˈjendər|
Definition:

Someone who identifies as bigender will exhibit behavior, characteristics and mannerisms of both females to males. Depending on the situation and context, a bigender person could express themselves with a distinctly female or male persona.

Where someone who is androgynous will more or less exhibit the behavior based on their gender across all situations and context, a bigender individual will change their behavior and characteristics for the context.

The concept of bigender began within the transgender community.

Example:

Trisha began to identify as bigender because she believed that she belonged to both genders, and didn’t want to pick between them.
