    Auingender

    Auingender is an umbrella term for all genders that are autonomous in nature (AUIN). Autonomy refers to the quality of being self-determining, and thus, standing independent from any sort of influence or other type of governance. It can also be though of as a sense of independence or freedom regarding one’s action, wills or desires.[1]

    Auingender refer to genders that are self-defined and stand independent from other concepts of gender, such as the gender binary and sometimes, non-binary. An individual with an autonomous gender may describe themselves as self-defined, liberated, emancipated or free from gender, it’s roles, it’s categorization and/or expression. Autonomous qualities are entirely personal and intimate, meaning that autonomy is expressed and experienced differently from individual to individual.  It is a gender that, to some degree, is simply the result of one acting freely in terms of their identity, expression, etc. Some individuals with autonomous gender elements may say that their gender simply just is, and that they are best described as themselves.

    History

    The concept of auingender was coined by Gender-Resource in 2020.[2] However, specific examples of auingenders such a maverique and egogender have existed before this.

    Heteronomy

    The opposite of autonominity is heteronominity. Heteronomy describes being “subject to something else”, or not being self-determining. A heteronomous gender refers to any gender that is neither self-defined nor governed by the owner. This outside influence can refer to any number of things, ranging from circumstance to social constructs.[3]
