Xenic or Xeno-aligned is a term used to describe people whose gender is aligned to something that doesn't fit the Western human binary of gender alignments. Instead of male or female aligned, one may feel like they're more aligned with animals, plants, things, or concepts. Xenic is the xenogender version of male- or female-aligned. So one might say "I am xenic" or "I am xeno-aligned". The term was designed to be used by xenogender individuals, but any non-binary person may use it.
