The ipsogender flag.

Ipsogender is a gender modality for “cis intersex” people. It refers to intersex people who do identify with the gender assigned to them at birth- either because they were coercively assigned a gender, or because it was not known they were intersex until later in life, making them "cis". However, they recognize that cis-ness does not apply to intersex people in the same ways it applies to perisex people, and so a cis intersex person may identify with ipsogender to underline the fact that they are not empowered by or protected under cissexism.

History[edit | edit source]

Ipsogender was coined on June 30, 2015 by Dr. Cary Costello[1], an intersex trans male sociology professor at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. He specializes in identity, sexuality, privilege, and marginalization, and advocates for transgender and intersex rights.

Flag[edit | edit source]

The ipsogender flag was designed by 1nklash on DeviantArt on July 9, 2016.[2] The flag uses the inverted colors of the intersex flag and uses the symbol for the Earth, which is sometimes used to represent intersex individuals.
