Assigned X at Birth (AXAB) is a form of assigned gender that is most often used for babies with intersex traits. AXAB is used for someone whose external sex traits could not be neatly identified as female or male. Such classification is not common practice and is only seen in certain cultures and regions where genders and sexes outside of the male and female are recognized. It is most commonly designated with an "X", but it is also sometimes seen as AIAB, standing for either assigned indeterminate at birth or assigned intersex at birth.
