Mingender is an umbrella term for all genders which are masculine-in-nature (shorted to MIN).[1] It can be used as an umbrella term for any genders that are related to masculinity.

It can also be used as a gender on its own, referring to any gender that isn't fully defined as masculine but is still related to masculinity, or a gender in which masculinity is its defining feature where the gender is not a binary man.[1] It's often used by individuals who cannot narrow down their gender any more than being masculine.


Mingender was coined by pastelmemer and posted by pride-color-schemes on 15 June 2017.[1]
