This term can be used to refer to people who have different senses of self that reflect these distinct genders. People who identify this way often feel they don't fit into society's expectations about what a man or a woman should be like; these individuals may also feel they identify with both masculinity and femininity.

The bigender flag

The first bigender flag was created by a non-binary activist to identify and represent people who fluctuate between two genders. The bigender flag is based on the colors of the transgender pride flag, with a white stripe in the center to symbolize those who are not exclusively male or female. The stripes at the top and bottom represent masculine and feminine as well as man and woman. The pink color represents femininity, while blue signifies masculinity.

The creator of the bi-gender flag was outed as a transphobe, pedophile, and abuser, thus it became controversial. After this information went public, others created new designs for the flag.
