LF Any stories with Non-binary, gender fluid, or agender mc
I'd really appreciate any rec's you can give, they don't have to be on RR either, just so long as they are free to read I'll be more than happy.
Here's a few examples of what i'm looking for (also they are really quite good, so give them a look)
Paternum: A Superhero Story
Exactly what I'm looking for, mc is cannon transgender non-binary and uses they/them pronouns
Basically what i'm looking for as far as genderfluid/agender goes, mc hops between bodies of many genders and has been doing so for so long they don't really identify one way or another.
Another excellent example as the mc uses they/them and is cannon non-binary
The Journal of Alexis Greco
MC is i think agender? (maybe gender fluid) and frequently switches between presentations and bodies as she pleases
Anime Girls from Another World
One of the main characters Allison is very gender non-conforming
Ranma 2 in 1
Only kinda matches the criteria, but is still a good read
As far as published books go there's Ursula K Le Guin's "The Left Hand of Darkness" which is a great read and there is an entire species of aliens who don't have any genders. There is also Ann Leckie's "Ancillary Justice" which has an entire space empire who's society doesn't have gender. Both excellent reads and well worth your time (they are probably at the library).
Thanks so much!!!
PS a list of terms:
Non-binary - meaning they don't identify as a guy or a girl and often use neo-pronouns like they/them, ei/eir, xe/xem, e/em
Genderfluid - meaning their gender frequently shifts around, sometimes more masculine, sometimes more feminine, often neither
Agender - meaning they don't really identify with a gender at all, often they will pick some pronouns and a presentation and stick with it just for convenience sake, but they don't really identify with it.
Gender Non-Conforming - meaning they have a gender they identify with, but they don't present themselves in the society standard way for that gender (ex boys who like dressing up in dresses, and skirts and makeup, or girls who like wearing mustaches or shave their heads)
I would also recommend my fictions, however, they are still fairly new (less than 10 chapters and less than a month old) and I'd rather you be able to sink your teeth into the reading. *looks at future notes for Cloudlark* Yeah, I'll wait for now, but I think you'll enjoy meeting the crew once I get them assembled. :)
Thanks for the recs!
Graven also has a major genderfluid character, and is a great story in general.
In Synth, all the main characters are Non-binary, referred to as They/them. I actually reached out to a friend who is a consultant for schools and businesses regarding LGBTQ+ concerns!
Worth the Candle (https://www.royalroad.com/fiction/25137/worth-the-candle) has a hermaphroditic side character ||that was designed by the MC prior to him waking up in the world|| and touches on the idea of gender constructs in a few different places throughout the story
