  1. Not conforming to fixed gender roles.
    • 2009, Julia Serano, Whipping Girl (page 346)
      Another way that one can be “transgressively gendered” is by identifying as genderqueer or genderfluid—i.e., refusing to identify fully as either woman or man.
    • 2011, Ellen Greenblatt, Serving LGBTIQ Library and Archives Users (page 29)
      A slightly newer term, genderqueer [] is also often used by people who believe they are genderfluid, who feel like both genders, who will sometimes feel male, sometimes female, or who may not believe that there are only two genders.
