Libragender can be an umbrella term or can be used as a term of it's own. As an on own it can describe individuals who are mostly agender but feel a slight connection to the concept of gender (in general).

History and Etymology
A formal coining post for Libragender was made by Tumblr user libragender on or before 10. July, 2014. The term would rapidly become known, being mentioned on Amino only a few days after and receiving its own entry on Urban Dictionary the next year.
The name comes from Libra, or the Zodiac sign typically depicted as a set of scales. In the coining post, libragender proposed an analogy of one side of the scale being agender, and the other any other gender identity. Under this analogy, the agender would far outweigh the other identity, but still not be 100% of the weight.
