Apothigenital is an altersex term for people repulsed by having any form of genitalia. One may or may not also desire no genitals (angenital,) or they may not desire a change due to personal, mental, emotional, and/or religious reasons.
The term was coined and the flag was created on February 6, 2019, by Tumblr user parsex-pride.
The significance of the flag's design and colors is unknown.
The prefix apothi- comes from the Greek word απώθησαν (apṓthīsan), meaning "repulsed".[note 1]
- According to Wiktionary, this appears to be an inflected form—precisely, 3rd person plural simple past active—of the verb απωθώ instead of an adjective, so a more accurate translation may be "they repulsed".
