Maverique is a bit queer which . Despite this maveriques have a distinct and firm sense of gender.
Maveriques can be multigender, with their other genders being related to maleness, femaleness, or neutrality.
Maverique is similar to aporagender, with the difference being that aporagender can be used as an umbrella term that can potentially encompass many genders, whereas maverique is a single, specific gender.
History[edit | edit source]
The term maverique was coined by Tumblr user Queerascat after being dissatisfied with the term neutrois on June 15, 2014.
Flag[edit | edit source]
The flag was also designed by Queerascat on the same day. The colors mean the following:
Yellow, meaning primary gender, as yellow is a primary color, meaning entirely independent from the other primary colors, like how maverique is completely seperate from masculinity and femininity. Yellow is also often associated with non-binary gender.
White represents autonomy and independence, both from the gender binary and from the spectrum of colors. White is the blank gender slate upon which maverique is based.
Orange represents a burning inner conviction, and the unorthodox and individualistic nature of mavericks.
Etymology[edit | edit source]
The word maverique is a combination of the word maverick and the French suffix -ique, meaning "similar too". Meaning that the gender is only 'maverick-like', in that it is unorthodox, even in regards to many non-binary genders, due to being unrelated to the gender binary, but is still not completely 'maverick-like' in that the gender is not a conscious choice of the maverique person, nor is it a political stance against the gender binary.
