    Eshed (אשד pronounced eh-shED) is a culturally exclusive gender that is fluid or has fluid characteristics.

    Eshed is exclusive to those who are Jewish (heritage or religion) and whose gender is fluid in some way. It can be genderfluid, genderflux, or have a fluid characteristic, such as boyflux, or fluid between alignments or gender expression.

    Those who are fluid in presentation or gender roles especially fit under Eshed.

    History

    Eshed was coined by Tirednowhasablog, a reformation Jew, in May of 2021.

    In Kabbalic belief, the son of Abram, Isaac, was born with the soul of a woman, but the body of a man. After the binding of Isaac, his soul transitioned to one of a male, to grant Abram (now Abraham) descendants. This is an interpretation that shares a similar concept to genderfluidity. The idea of gilgul ha-neshamot, or "the cycling of souls," is described as a situation where a male soul can change to a female soul, similar to the story of Isaac, and vice versa.

    Etymology

    Eshed is taken from Hebrew and means "cascade" or "waterfall," referring to how fluid genders can be chaotic, or flow freely.
