Thema: Glossar

Cisgender [Wikipedia]

»Das Adjektiv cisgender oder zisgender (von lateinisch cis- ›diesseits‹, und englisch gender ›soziales Geschlecht‹), kurz cis, bezeichnet die Übereinstimmung von Geschlechtsidentität und dem Geschlecht, das einer Person bei der Geburt zugewiesen wurde (ihrem Geburtsgeschlecht, auch Hebammengeschlecht genannt), meist beurteilt anhand sichtbarer körperlicher Geschlechtsmerkmale. Eine solche Übereinstimmung findet sich bei der weit überwiegenden Mehrheit aller Menschen: Sie identifizieren sich mit ihrem im Geburtenregister eingetragenen Geschlecht – im Unterschied zu Transgender-Personen (trans- ›jenseitig, darüber hinaus‹).«

Bigender [OK2BME]

»Bigender is a gender identity where the person moves between feminine and masculine gender identities and behaviours, possibly depending on context. Some bigender individuals express two distinct ›female‹ and ›male‹ personas, feminine and masculine respectively; others find that they identify as two genders simultaneously.«

Pangender [OK2BME]

»Pangender people are those who feel they identify as all genders. The term has a great deal of overlap with gender queer. Because of its all-encompassing nature, presentation and pronoun usage varies between different people who identify as pangender.«

Gender Variant [OK2BME]

»Gender variance, or gender nonconformity, is behaviour or gender expression by an individual that does not match masculine and feminine gender norms. People who exhibit gender variance may be called gender variant, gender non-conforming, gender diverse or gender atypical, and may be transgender, or otherwise variant in their gender expression. Some intersex people may also exhibit gender variance.«

Gender Queer [OK2BME]

»Gender Queer is an umbrella term for gender identities that are not exclusively masculine or feminine—identities which are thus outside of the gender binary and cisnormativity.«

Pansexualität [OK2BME]

»Pansexuality, or omnisexuality, is sexual attraction, romantic love, or emotional attraction toward people of any sex or gender identity. Pansexual people may refer to themselves as gender-blind, asserting that gender and sex are insignificant or irrelevant in determining whether they will be sexually attracted to others.«

Asexualität [OK2BME]

»Asexuality (or nonsexuality) is the lack of sexual attraction to anyone, or low or absent interest in sexual activity. It may be considered the lack of a sexual orientation, or one of the variations thereof, alongside heterosexuality, homosexuality, and bisexuality.«
