Caedogender, or caedgender, is a gender that has been "cut away" or damaged by trauma. At one point one may have experienced a certain gender at one point, but one feels that their connection to that gender has been damaged, altered, or completely cut away after a traumatic event. This is typically associated with sufferers of PTSD or other trauma and stressor related disorders. Caedogender can be combined with other relevant genders such as caedogirl, caedoboy, caedononbinary, etc. It can also be used as an identity on its own for those who feel like they have been cut away from the concept of gender in general.
Dispargender may be considered the non-exclusive version of this.
