glossary of terms

Cisgenetic: A person whose X-gene identification (either as one who bears said gene, or as one who does not) matches up with their body's physical configuration.

Differently-gened: A person who bears the X-gene, or identifies as bearing the X-gene.

Mutant: Offensive term, HIGHLY triggering, recommending you avoid it entirely in favor of "differently-gened".

PAN: Short for "passing as normal", any differently-gened being who is apparently indistinguishable from Homo sapiens sapiens. Recommend avoiding this term.

Transgenetic: A person whose X-gene identification (either as one who bears said gene, or as one who does not) does not match up with their body's physical configuration.
