Trixic or Orbisian is a diamoric orientation that refers to non-binary people who are attracted to women. This attraction can be an exclusive attraction or not. A trixic or orbisian person may or may not be attracted to other genders as well. If one is exclusively attracted to women one might also identity as feminamoric. While only orbisian was specifically created as a non-binary equivalent of sapphic, both terms can be used as such. Trixic or orbisian can be used by any non-binary person, regardless of alignment, though non-binary people attracted to women do not have to identify with these terms. It may be abbreviated to NBLW, (non-binary loving women).

The male equivalent of trixic is toric.

History

The term orbisian was created by Tumblr user demisexual-yuri, which is now deactivated, circa July 17th, 2017.[1] In continuation of that thought, trixic was coined by Bigendering and some friends on a discord server (including Tumblr user demisexual-yuri) on Tumblr on July 20th, 2017.[2]

Flag

The orbisian flag, which is often used as the trixic flag, was created by Tumblr user Non-aligned-sapphic on October 10th, 2017.[3] Purple and yellow represents being non-binary, pink represents attraction to women.

The alternative trixic flag was created by an anonymous wiki user on April 20, 2021. The purple stripes represent nonbinary attraction to women. The pink poppy represents perfect love. The flag is designed to follow the same format as the sapphic, achillean, and diamoric flags, as well as similar flags for juvelic orientations.

Another alternate trixic flag was designed by Reddit user u/frcgdad_ on September 1, 2020.[4]

The alternative Poppy-enby flags were coined by FANDOM user Clear.Skyes on April 6, 2021. This user would also go on to coin the alternative name, "poppy-enby" or "poppy non-binary" the same day.

The m-spec and a-spec inclusive trixic flag was designed by FANDOM user Ariathatsme on May 18, 2021. The meaning goes as follows: Pink for female-loving, femininity, and female solidarity; yellow for non-binary individuality, unity, and solidarity; white for connection and inclusivity to all female-loving enbies; orange to include trixics attracted to women in a non-sexual way; and purple to represent m-spec trixics and asexual/a-spec trixics.

Etymology

Trixic originates from the Latin suffix -trix denoting feminine agent nouns such as aviatrix or dominatrix.

Orbisian is based on the Latin word for circle (orbis), referencing the fact that women and femininity are often represented by circles and rounded shapes in western art.
