Feathergender is a xenogender that feels light, decorative, and similar to the sensation one gets when a feather brushes up against your skin. It can also be when one feels a strong connection to feathers, and the feathers of a certain kind of bird.
Feathergender is not the same thing as birdgender; but people who are feathergender may also identify with one or more birdgenders. Someone can feel their gender is related to the feathers of a bird while not feeling that their gender is related to that actual bird, so some feathergender people may say that they're "[bird] feathergender" to denote the bird to whose feathers they feel the strongest connection. Examples of genders based on the feathers of specific kinds of birds are owlfeather-gender, hawkfeather-gender, etc.
Feathergender can be felt alongside other genders besides feathergender, and although feathergender is a xenogender, feathergender people do not have to be xenic.
Feathergirls are women-aligned feathergender people, Featherboys are men-aligned feathergender people, Featherbies are non-binary-aligned feathergender people, Feathrals are neutral-aligned feathergender people, Featherages are agenrine-aligned feathergender people, and plural-aligned feathergender people are Multifeathers. Xenine-aligned feathergender people would simply call themselves Feathers.
The term feathergender and all its specificities and variant terms were coined by LGBTA Wiki user Rainbowraven96 (now Reign of the breadsticcs) on February 6, 2021.
