    A termcollector, also called ravencollector, or collectorraven, is an individual who uses many labels to describe their gender and orientation, as well as many pronoun sets, "collecting" labels and pronouns that fit them.

    Anyone who has multiple labels to describe their gender and/or orientations, and/or goes by multiple pronoun sets, may identify as a termcollector. The hoarder equivalent termhoarder is often considered exclusive to those who experience their term collecting as a form of hoarding, related to one's neurodivergence.

    History

    Termcollector was coined by FANDOM user Ellipsist on August 22nd, 2020. The official flag and three alternate flags were created on the same date, by the same user. A fifth flag was created by Reddit user DConan010 on January 4th, 2021.[1]

    Flag

    The first flag is based off of the kiwihoarder and turkeyhoarder flags. It uses the colors of a raven, namely black, gray, and dark blue.

    Alternate termcollector flag by unknown.

    The second, third and fourth flags are based on the colors of a raven (black and dark blue), and the colors of a raven's cache, shiny objects (gold and silver) and eggs (white). The white can also represent the shininess of the objects ravens steal. The silver and gray can also represent rocks and pebbles because ravens are also known to steal those.

    The fifth flag is a simplified version of these flags.

    In the sixth flag, the grey represents the hollow feeling of gender or being unsure of one's identity. The gold represents hoarding or collecting many terms to classify as, like a dragon's collection of gold in mythology. The red represents the metaphorical dragon laying atop it's collection, or the termcollector with their terms.
