Adgender is a gender modality that refers to someone who moves towards a given gender, or gender presentation. It is slightly more inclusive than terms like transmasculine and transfeminine as it includes people who wouldn't be included by trans. Examples include:
- An AFAB bigender person who has been on testosterone and now needs to do the same things as transfeminine people to pass on days where they feel like a girl. This person wouldn't be transmasculine but adfeminine.
- A male headmate in a system who has to dress the body of the cis woman host when they front in order to feel themself would be admasculine.
- A cis man with Kallmann syndrome who chooses to take testosterone might consider themself admasculine.
- An AFAB non-binary femme might call themself adfeminine because they feel like they're transitioning into a different kind of femininity than the heteronormative role they were assigned at birth.
- A butch woman who transitions but wants to avoid the connotations of transmasculine might feel more comfortable calling themself admasculine.
- A female headmate in a system who, in world, is transfeminine but the host is an AFAB body. They would be adfeminine.
- An intersex person who has undergone medical intervention but doesn't consider themself trans might consider themself adgender.
- A trans woman would be adfeminine and transfeminine, because in this case adfeminine an umbrella term that transfeminine falls under.
