Intergender is a gender identity that has two contradictory opinions on how it should be used.
- Intergender can be used by both dyadic people and intersex people who feel between male and female.
- Intergender is inappropriate for dyadic people and is to be used only by intersex people because they need words that correlate with their bodies. Dyadic people should use a different word such as androgyne.
As an identity, intergender can be considered to be between male and female, or to be a combination of the two. Intergender people may also identify as nonbinary, genderqueer and/or transgender. However, some intergender people consider themselves cisgender, as their gender is reflective of their sex characteristics at birth.
Intergender is different from Ipso gender which is intersex people agreeing with the sex they were assigned at birth.
