    Feminamoric is a diamoric orientation that refers to non-binary and/or genderqueer individuals who are attracted exclusively or primarily to women.

    The term was created because most other ways to say that one is attracted to women involve the assumption of one's gender. For example, a straight individual attracted to women is typically a man, while a gay or lesbian individual attracted to women is typically a woman (however this is not always the case.) Although, some non-binary individuals have also adopted this framing of their orientation, some non-binary individuals are uncomfortable with this, and found the term feminamoric useful for specifying a non-binary individual attracted to women.

    The mascic counterpart to feminamoric is viramoric. The enboric counterpart is ceteramoric. A similar term is gynosexual, though some individuals are uncomfortable identifying with this term as it can have transphobic implications.

    History

    The first usage of the term, alongside feminamoric, was in an anonymous tumblr ask to Tumblr user Marlowelune in May 12, 2017.[1] A follow up definition also sent anonymously was posted on the same day.[2]

    The term is styled after diamoric and comes from the Latin words femina, meaning "woman", and amor, meaning "love".

    Flag

    The original and most commonly used flag, designed by Milith Rusignuolo, has 5 stripes: maroon, white, pink, white, olive green. It was based off of the Diamoric and Genderqueer flags, as well as the traditional female and male colours.[3][4]

    In a flag redesign by 2KoiLouise4, the colours from the original flag are kept, but rearranged and given meaning: maroon for femininity, pink for exclusive attraction to women, white for non-binary, lime green for NBLW, and olive green for masculinity.[5]

    In several proposed new feminamoric flag, shades of blue are used to represent non-binary or genderqueer individual's attraction to women, for numerous reasons (the Venus symbol is used to symbolize women, the clouds covering the planet Venus' surface are blue, and the mythological roman goddess Venus emerged from the sea when she was born).

    In the "yellow banner" non-binary version of the flag by demisexual-yuri, feuillyadeux, bizexuals, and justfolieadoit, the non-binary colors dominate the flag to show that the individual's non-binary-ness is central to the attraction and is what makes the attraction inherently non-straight. The yellow stripes at the side represent women, as Venus is seen as the "female" planet, and is yellow.
