Neutro (pronounced: noo-troh) is a gender term in which someone feels as if they are non-binary, androgynous, or genderless(-aligned) but in a masculine way. Another way this can be described is where someone feels as if they are mostly neutral, but still have or feel masculine aspects about themselves and choose to keep them. Individuals who identify as neutro may each feel this gender differently from how other neutro-identifying individuals feel this gender. Neutro can be defined in various ways, including, but not limited to:
- One who was AMAB (assigned male at birth), has transitioned to a neutral gender, but feels as if some particular aspects of themselves may be masculine.
- One who was AFAB (assigned female at birth), has transitioned to a neutral gender, but feels as if some particular aspects of themselves may be masculine.
- One who was AIAB (assigned intersex at birth) or varsex, feels as if they are mostly neutral, but also feels as if a masculine aspect of themselves is there.
- One is non-binary-aligned but connected to masculinity in some manner.
- One feels neutral but is more comfortable being perceived masculinely.
- One is genderfluid(-aligned) but mostly feels masculine and neutral genders.
If you identify as Neutro, you have permission to add your own perception of this gender.

After Miraheze user Mike7outlaw coined masculina and feminino, he decided there should be a neutral/masculine term. That led him to coin this term after checking if Google Translate also added the masculine term of neuter in Spanish.
All flags were created by Cerkus on Miraheze at the same date the term was coined (March 21st, 2022).
As stated in the page masculina and feminino, Neutro is the grammatically incorrect term of "neuter" in English. The letter "A" is always feminine in Spanish, and the letter "O" is usually masculine in Spanish, but can also be considered neutral.
