    Gender Creative or gender expansive is a term for when one's conception of their gender, or gender in general, intrinsically differs from the prevailing social norms. In particular, it is commonly used for when a child or teenager rejects gender norms and stereotypical expression, commonly seen in children who are raised without a prescribed gender (known as "gender creative parenting").

    History

    The term "gender creative" was first coined by Dr. Diane Ehrensaft, a developmental and clinical psychologist in the San Francisco Bay Area and the Director of Mental Health and founding member of the Child and Adolescent Gender Center. She introduced this term in her book Gender Born, Gender Made.[1] Her second book, The Gender Creative Child, was titled after the term she created.

    Flag

    The gender creative flag was created by Leslie Ellen on July 19, 2015.[2] Lavender represents the blurring of binary gender norms. While white represents freedom of gender expression.

    An alternate gender creative flag was made by WIllow on October 31st, 2020. The light blue, pink, and purple represents children/youth and gender roles/the gender binary, yellow represents genders outside the binary, green represents unique genders, dark grey represents being void of gender, light grey represents fluidity, and the red boxes represent leaving the box/thinking outside the box.
