Etheria (E-Thur-Uh) is a gender that is strongly connected to femininity, girlhood, and womanhood, but not in the same way as a human woman/girl would be connected to femininity, girlhood and womanhood. It is something completely separate and is entirely on its own from the human gender binary. It may be described as a gender that is feminine-aligned, woman-aligned and/or fingender and can be fiaspec, but is not humanly woman aligned, so there is a connection to womanhood but as otherworldly/other dimensional women would experience. This gender is a static gender, however one can be multigender, genderfluid and/or genderflux and use this. This gender can be a kingender, alterhumangender or not, but anyone can use it although it is primarily meant for alterhumans to use. Instead of using girl, one can use “ethe”.
The terms etheria and etherio were coined by Tumblr user TheAlienicAngel on August 28th, 2021. The etheria and etherio flags were created around the same time.
The black stripes represent nonhumanism whereas the two dark stripes of pink represent femininity of ethereal otherworldliness and the one bright pink stripe represents united womanhood/girlhood.
Ether comes from ethereal, meaning “of or relating to the regions beyond the earth” and -ia is a feminine noun used in English.
