Maverique is a gender characterized by autonomy and inner conviction** regarding a sense of self that is entirely independent of male/masculinity, female/femininity or anything which derives from the two while still being neither without gender nor of a neutral gender.
In other words, maveriques are not:
- male/masculine, female/feminine or anything related to these two genders
- without a gender
- apathetic about gender
- gender neutral
- a sense of gender that is independent of all else (autonomous)— as if in a category all of its own without outside influence.
- a distinct and firm sense of gender (conviction).
Flag colors explained:
"hello! this is the flag that i’ve designed for maverique, the gender i’ve recently coined.
the “short & sweet” explanation of the colors is:
- yellow (#fff344): primary/elementary* gender; non-binary gender
- white (#ffffff): autonomy; independence
- orange (#f49622): inner conviction; maverick
Yellow is a primary color (see: subtractive color / CMYK), meaning that it isn’t obtainable from combining any other colors and thus is entirely independent from the other primary colors, cyan (blue) and magenta (pink). *i feel that this is the perfect analogy for maverique’s relationship to male/masculinity and female/femininity. yellow is also often associated with non-binary gender.
White represents autonomy or independence from the gender binary and even from the spectrum of colors (genders) created by combinations of cyan/blue (male/masculinity) and magenta/pink (female/femininity). white represents the figurative blank gender slate upon which maverique is based.
Orange represents the deep, burning inner conviction that a maverique feels in regards to their own gender. it also represents the unorthodox and individualistic nature of mavericks, upon which this gender is based.
