Kingender is a gender identity related to one’s kintype. A kintype (or otherkin) relates to a non-human identification. One example of this could be someone who identifies as a dragon on a spiritual, mental, or emotional degree.
The kingender experience is different for everyone. Some examples of what kingender people may experience are:
- a change in gender when one experiences a shift (kingenderfluid)
- the experience of being a certain gender because of one's identity (e.g. a dragonkin knowing they wouldn't be female if they weren't dragonkin)
- Identifying as a xenogender related to one's kintype
This can be considered genderNH if one is kin to a non-human being or character.
The identity is exclusive to those who identify as otherkin, because the gender of people who identify as kingender is intertwined with their non-human identity. If one is not otherkin, they cannot be kingender, as they do not experience a key part of this identity.
