what do these gender words mean?
If you have no idea what a xenogender is, this Carrd is likely to be completely baffling to you. Probably not a good idea for you to continue reading, and I suggest heading to this Carrd I wrote to explain xenogenders in general.
Musicagender is an umbrella term for audiogenders that can only be described through a specific musical aesthetic, genre, instrument, artist, album or song. The suffix -albumic is sometimes used for musicagenders related to albums.
When I started looking for lemondemongender, I couldn't find an original coining post, so I redefined it in a Tumblr post on January 11th, 2021, based on how posts I could find and context clues from other Lemon Demon-based genders seemed to imply.
I did make a mistake, though, because I believe I made a very common error in conflating musicagender and cadensgender. These two terms get used interchangeably very often, but as far as I can see historically they do have a distinct difference. Essentially, Musicagenders are when the genuine only way a gender can be described is by using a specific musical aesthetic, genre, instrument, artist, album or song (etc) in the place of description. Like the genuine only way you can express how a gender feels is just by that piece of music.
Whereas Cadensgender is when your gender is easily influenced by music, but that music isn't necessarily your gender. As it later turned out, I am lemondemongender, but going by the definitions of cadensgender and musicagender... I wouldn't be a Lemon Demon musicagender, I'd be a cadensgender.So, both because of my own experience and how these two distinct terms get mixed up a lot anyway, I would like to amend what I originally said and add that lemondemongender can be a musicagender or a cadensgender.

I'm on your DNI, can I use this gender?Well, yeah. It is a gender identity, which has a level of separation from the boundaries I've set - While I did do a lot of work for lemondemongender, even if I was the first person to coin it, my coining it sort of just puts it out there in the world, and if someone comes across it and realizes "oh wow, that's ME" I can't necessarily make them. Un-be that, if that makes sense. The only exception would be if someone who said they identified as a term was twisting it in a fashion to make it bigoted or predatory (which I have seen with some other terms, ex pro-shippers co-opting terms like amatopunk to try to make it about predatory things despite the definition and coiner being very clear that amatopunk is not that).
I disagree with a lot of statements made by coiners of terms I identify with, but I can't really make myself. Not be that.
I just would prefer you not follow me/show up in my notes on any of my blogs if you're on my DNI. I also don't want you to remake my flag specifically because you are on my DNI. Repost it if you want a post with it, and note somewhere I'm an inclusionist of something you exclude or whatever.
