Gastrogender, also known as gastrongender, foodgender, genderfood or foodic, is a subtype of aesthetigenders that is described as being like, sharing the qualities of, or being related to a specific flavor, combination of flavors, or type of food or drink. It is mostly linked to the flavor, but can also be linked to texture, appearance, or the feeling that a flavor/food/drink evokes.
Gastrogender was first coined by Tumblr troll blog jhendurs October 1, 2015 and meant "a fluid gender experience that is dependent/influenced on an individual’s eating habits". Gastrogender in it's current definition was coined by Tumblr user mogai-watch in May 2018 for categorization purposes on the Mogaipedia (an anti-mogai website).
Foodic or genderfood was coined as an alternative to gastrogender by Tumblr user genderheaven on March 16th, 2021.
Flag and symbols
The flag was created on October 6th, 2019 by Tumblr user mogai-moth.
The foodic/genderfood flag was created by genderheaven and was given the following symbolism: "light green is for crops, yellow is for xenicness and likening your gender to something unrelated to the gender binary, dark green is for plants that produce food, red (#C61618) is for meat, and brown (#6B3D0E) is for dirt, wheat, and the browning of cooked food.The symbol in the middle is the symbol of main-belt asteroid 26 Rroserpina. It’s symbol is modeled after a pomegranate, which seems fitting, and it’s similar to the Iris symbol used in the xenogender flag."
