Anfisian refers to an individual who is wlw, wlm, mlm, and mlw, meaning an individual who is a woman and a man who is attracted to women and men. Being "a women and a man" includes A) individuals who are genderfluid, and therefore are sometimes women and sometimes men. B) Bigender or multigender individuals who are men or man aligned and women/woman aligned at the same time. C) an Androgyne-aligned non-binary individual who feels connected to womenhood and manhood at the same time. An anfisian individual is attracted to women and men and/or prioritizes their attraction to women and men over other attractions they may have. Anfisian is an umbrella term, like sapphic and achillean, though it can also be used as an identity by itself.
