  1. Gender Code prototype 1
  2. () to indicate a range of variance; Q-(+++) means "I range from slightly not-Q to extremely Q". (Genderfluid people: you're going to get a lot of mileage out of this one)
  3. @ to indicate wild variance; Q@ means "My Q status varies so wildly it's better approximated by rnd() than anything else."
  4. > to indicate a desire to change; Q--->+ means "I am extremely not-Q but would like to become slightly Q in the future."
  5. ? to indicate strong uncertainty; Q? means "I don't comprehend where I stand in regards to Q." or "I don't comprehend Q as a concept in the first place."
  6. ! to indicate inapplicability; !Q means "Q is something that doesn't apply to me." or "I would opt out of Q entirely if it were possible."
  7.  
  8. Code pieces are case-sensitive. f and F mean different things.
  9.  
  10. All code pieces are optional. Leaving a code piece absent indicates no more or less than "I do not wish to discuss this subject in this context". Inapplicable code pieces can also be left out to save space, if you don't feel strongly about the fact that they're inapplicable. (This will be more useful if/when the Gender Code gets as long as long as the Geek Code; right now a full Gender Code can fit comfortably in half a Notepad line.)

  14. M: Maleness
  15.  
  16. M++: I am seriously male, claiming otherwise may lead to actual physical harm.
  17. M+: I am male. Please do not claim otherwise.
  18. M: I am male, but being read otherwise will not upset me or trigger dysphoria.
  19. M-: I am not male, but being read as male will not upset me or trigger dysphoria.
  20. M--: I am not male, please do not refer to me as male.
  21. M---: I'm seriously not male, referring to me as such might lead to actual physical harm.
  22. M----: I'm so not male that if the concept of maleness were to vanish overnight, I'd actually lose some ability to describe my gender coherently since I can no longer point at men and say "See that? I'm not that."
  23. M@: I'm genderfluid and my maleness varies so wildly I've decided to stop keeping track.
  24. M?: I previously assumed I was not male, but am currently questioning the possibility that I might be.
  25. !M: My gender cannot be described in terms of "male" and "not male".
  26.  
  27.  
  28. F: Femaleness
  29.  
  30. F++: I am seriously female, claiming otherwise may lead to actual physical harm.
  31. F+: I am female. Please do not claim otherwise.
  32. F: I am female, but being read otherwise will not upset me or trigger dysphoria.
  33. F-: I am not female, but being read as female will not upset me or trigger dysphoria.
  34. F--: I am not female, please do not refer to me as female.
  35. F---: I'm seriously not female, referring to me as such might lead to actual physical harm.
  36. F----: I'm so not female that if the concept of femaleness were to vanish overnight, I'd actually lose some ability to describe my gender coherently since I can no longer point at women and say "See that? I'm not that."
  37. F@: I'm genderfluid and my femaleness varies so wildly I've decided to stop keeping track.
  38. F?: I previously assumed I was not female, but am currently questioning the possibility that I might be.
  39. !F: My gender cannot be described in terms of "female" and "not female".
  40.  
  41. N: Nonbinary
  42.  
  43. N++: Referring to me with gendered terminology without specifying that I'm nonbinary will upset me.
  44. N+: Nonbinary and proud!
  45. N: My gender doesn't fit squarely into the male/female binary, I suppose.
  46. N-: My gender is binary, and suggestions that I should consider being nonbinary upset me.
  47. N@: I'm genderfluid, which I suppose is nonbinary by definition, but my personal experience with it is. more complex than that.
  48. N?: I'm currently questioning the possibility that my gender might be nonbinary.
  49. !N: Isn't binary/nonbinary also a sort of binary?
  50.  
  51.  
  52. A: Agender
  53.  
  54. A++: Don't gender me or I'll punch you.
  55. A+: Agender and proud!
  56. A: I don't have a gender, but referring to me with gendered terminology won't upset me, as long as you aren't using the same gender all the time.
  57. A-: I definitely have a gender.
  58. A--: I've dealt with too many TERFs claiming "gender is a social construct, therefore biosex" to be okay with the idea of not being gendered.
  59. A@: Sometimes I have a gender?
  60. A?: I'm currently questioning the possibility that I might be agender.
  61. !A: If gender is a social construct, how am I even supposed to know whether I have one or not?
  62.  
  63.  
  64. K: Kintype-related gender
  65.  
  66. K++: My gender literally is my kintype, to the point that I get upset when people gender the thing(s) I'm kin with differently than me.
  67. K+: My gender is strongly tied to my kintype.
  68. K: My gender and kintype seem to interact somewhat.
  69. K-: I am otherkin, but that has nothing to do with my gender.
  70. K@: I have multiple kintypes that have different effects on my gender and it's all very confusing.
  71. K?: My kin feels and gender feels are so nebulous that I don't even know whether they're interacting or not.
  72. !K: I'm not otherkin.
  73.  
  74.  
  75. f: Gender fluidity

  83. f---: My gender has changed, once, but I don't think it'll happen again.
  84. f@: I'm so genderfluid that even my fluidity is fluid.
  85. f?: My gender is so confusing that I don't even know whether it's changing.
  86. !f: My gender isn't fluid; it stays the same all the time.
  87.  
  88.  
  89. T: Medical transition
  90.  
  91. T+++: I've had major surgery. (e.g: SRS)
  92. T++: I've had minor surgery. (e.g: orchidectomy, mastectomy)
  93. T+: I'm taking hormones.
  94. T: I'm looking into transitioning.
  95. T-: I'm not interested in medical transition.
  96. T@: Where's the hormones to transition into a dragon?
  97. T?: I don't know whether I want to medically transition.
  98. !T: Due to unrelated conditions, medical transition isn't an option for me.

  108. C----: I'm Laverne Cox, Caitlyn Jenner, or someone else who has been in national news.
  109. C?: I may have been outed without permission, but I haven't confirmed that.
  110. !C: I'm cisgender.
  111. Cx: I'm "stealth" -- presenting full-time, but keeping my trans status a secret.
