"I'm Questioning My Sexuality, Is There A Term For..." (Part 1)

This is part one of three posts for people who are questioning their sexuality. This serves as a masterpost for a large amount of sexualities, orginized mostly based on the gender(s) you're attracted to. (Parts 2 and 3 will cover a-spec identities.)

A note before we start: Instead of writing out "women and women-aligned people" and "men and men-aligned people" a thousand times I wrote "women*" and "men*" in all instances to show that non-binary people are include in all these definitions unless explicitly specified otherwise.

Also note that some terms say "(exclusive or not)" in this case it means that someone with that identity is definitely attracted to a certain gender(s), but they may or may not be attracted to other genders as well (wha…

View on Gender, Non-Outherine, and Coining a New Term

Over a year ago I made a post describing my view on gender. I didn't particularly like the way I visualized it, but I couldn't think of anything better. Well, now I've thought of something better. Admittedly, it's more complicated than the version I presented before, but I feel like this version more actually describes gendered expirences.

In this case, neutrality is defined as a gender which is not related to masculinity, and feminity in any way, but is still strongly gendered in a way that still typically falls into the understanding human genders. They are genders that would b…

A Very Special Milestone

Today we've reached two major milestones. 
First, we've reached 800 pages of this wiki! It's crazy how fast this wiki is growing. It feels like we only just reached 700 pages. Also, fun fact, since this wiki is almost exactly two years old, it averages out to just a little bit over one page added per day.
Second thing (and the thing I will be talking about for the rest of this post): we've just achieved one article starting with each letter of the alphabet!
Now, you might be thinking "there's only 26 letters, how does it take 800 pages to get one for each letter?" Well, that's actually a bit of a story, which I will tell to you now.

I think it was around 400 articles when I first got the idea of one article per letter of the alphabet. When you…
