Gender Friction (also known as the magnitude of gender friction) is a genderfluid term to describe the level of friction experienced when switching between genders. This gender quality primarily occurs for individuals who are unigenderfluid (experiencing just one gender at a time) but can also occur in multigenderfluid or unigenderfluidflux individuals.
A gender with a high level of gender friction is called gender-frictive. A gender with a low level of gender friction is called gender-receptive.
Gender Friction is not an identity, as it describes the amount of friction experienced when switching genders but does not specify what amount. It is a qualitative measurement tool.
The term was coined by FANDOM wiki user Nemosexual on August 16, 2021, after a discussion in a non-binary Discord group the previous day. It was coined through this page and has no outside sources.
