Pangender is a non-binary gender defined as being more than one gender. A pangender person may consider themselves a member of all genders.[1] The prefix pan is Greek and means "all".[1] Pangender is a kind of third gender, much like bigender, trigender, or genderqueer.[2] Pangender individuals may identify with gender inclusive or gender neutral pronouns instead of gendered ones (such as she/he or her/him).


Contemporary problemsEdit

A current issue for individuals of non-binary genders is which bathroom to use in public; either the one matching society’s expectations (appearing/dressing masculine must use the male restroom; appearing/dressing feminine must use the female restroom) or the one matching their internal feelings.[3]
