Ternary or trinary genders are three primary pre-existing gender identities accessible within ones own culture. This gender arity usually includes binary genders and a tertiary gender. This tertiary identity can be a third gender or other abinary identity, such as neutrois/neither (or none), or liaspec centrigender, such as androgyne/both, generally monogender, not necessarily allogender.
Gender trinarism is often considered a form of exorsexist discrimination towards non-trinary and atrinary individuals, reinforcing an extension of gender binarism. It could be either in ways of language or identity.
It may also affect non-binary/binaryn't and gender/pronoun non-conforming individuals, such as enforcing trinary expectations of men using he/him pronouns and having masculine presentation, women using she/her pronouns and being feminine, or non-binary individuals using they/them and looking androgynous or neutral.
Gender trinary may also be known as gender trichotomy.
In June 2018, Tumblr user exorsexistbullshit defines gender trinarism as the idea that all non-binary people are just a separate gender from women and men. The term is later used in some academic articles.
