Khanith (also spelled Khaneeth or Xanith; Arabic: خنيث; khanīth) denotes a person assigned male at birth who uses feminine gender expression, including trans women, men who have sex with men, or cisgender men perceived as feminine. It is generally considered derogatory and misleading, but some individuals have sought to reclaim it as a mark of pride.
