not exclusively male or female
„Non-binary gender is any gender that isn’t exclusively male or female. Non-binary people may feel some mix of both male and female, somewhere in between, or something completely different.
The language hasn’t always been around, and we are still developing terminology (that’s why things change in the LGBTQ world so often), but the concepts aren’t new at all. Non-binary gender is a relatively new term. Throughout history, in many different cultures around the world, not only have more than two genders existed, but they’ve also been recognized, accepted, and respected.“
