    The personal comfort pride flag.

    Personal comfort is a term used to describe how someone is comfortable acting, talking, expressing their emotions, the activities that someone likes to do, etc. Society often categorises these with concepts such as masculinity, femininity, or androgyny. It’s important to know that all of these concepts are social constructs that might vary depending on one’s society and culture.

    Types of Personal Comfort

    There are two types of personal comfort that someone can experience:

    Intrapersonal Comfort

    This is how someone is comfortable when interacting with themself. This includes but it’s not limited to: activities they like to do, way of acting, or certain behaviours. One might feel dysphoria if they don’t act how they truly are.

    Interpersonal Comfort

    This is how someone is comfortable when interacting with other individuals. This includes but it’s not limited to: how they talk to others, how they act in front of others, or how they treat other individuals. One might feel dysphoric if they don’t act how they truly are, as individuals often hide their true beings due to social pressure.

    Personal Comfort vs Personality

    It’s important to differentiate personal comfort from the personality. Personal comfort is a part of one’s personality, but only the traits that society considers masculine or feminine fall into this category, the rest of the personality traits that aren’t gendered by society don’t fall under this term. Having a personality that society considers feminine or masculine doesn’t necessarily make you a girl or a boy, it’s just a label.

    Formation of labels

    The labels referring to personal comfort are formed by the combination of the word “personal” and the corresponding gender, joined by a dash (personal-xxxxx). For example, if someone is comfortable interacting as a woman, but not completely, they are called personal-demigirl.

    Those who are comfortable interacting like their assigned gender at birth are called personal-cisgenders, and those who feel uncomfortable interacting like their assigned gender at birth are called personal-transgenders.

    Flag

    The physical comfort flag was designed by the wikia user 1MoreUser on August 30, 2021. The blue stripe represents men, the pink stripe represents women, the light blue and light pink stripes represent demigenders that are partially, but not completely, connected to masculinity and femininity respectively. The violet stripe represents multigenders because the violet is the mixture of blue and pink. The two yellow stripes symbolise the large number of non-binary genders. The black triangle represents the lack of gender or agenders, the grey one symbolises the partial lack of gender and the white one represents those who are gender neutral. The purple stripe located at the top represents spirituality and the interaction with oneself, also known as intrapersonal interaction. The orange stripe located at the bottom symbolises friendships ans the interaction with other individuals, also known as interpersonal interaction. It’s important to emphasise that both of these stripes are specifically located at the end of the flag to incorporate in the community all the groups represented by the stripes in between them.
