Mogai Genders Wiki

the archaeogender flag

Archaeogender is an aesthetigender related to the act of uncovering additional parts of one’s gender identity that may have been "hidden" or "buried", similar to how an archaeologist may uncover fossils or ancient artifacts. This is a masculine and neutral leaning gender that can also be influenced by archaeology aesthetics, dusty/faded colors, and shades of orange, yellow, and brown.  

Its feminine counterpart is arcaneagender, and its xenine counterpart is arkhaigender.


Archaeogender was coined on May 5, 2021 by FANDOM user Snailrat, with the flags being created at the same time.


The two orange stripes at the top and the two brown stripes at the bottom of the flag represent colors commonly associated with masculinity, the sun, and archaeology, while the gold stripes in the center represent the core pieces of one’s gender identity, whether they have discovered all of it or not.

The emblem present in the first flag is of an ancient scroll with a pickaxe and a brush, showing this gender’s connection to archaeology and archaeologist aesthetics.

Other Definitions[]

Another possible definition of archaeogender is the opposite of neogender. It is also umbrella term that describes any gender terms that were not coined recently. Under a more specific definition of the term it describes any gender created before the year 2000 (though the exact limit between archaeogender and neogenders may be subjective). The most commonly known archaeogenders are the binary genders, male and female. Most culturally specific genders, such as hijra, or two-spirit are also archaeogenders. Some other genders such as neutrois and bigender, can also qualify as archaeogenders, using the definition of any gender from before 2000.

This definition appears to have been originally coined by Tumblr user lgbtqiarchive on or before May 25, 2019, as the opposite of neogender,[1] though the exact year of 2000 was later given by MM at Mogai-Wiki on October 20, 2020.[2] This use of the term is rarely seen outside the specific context of defining neogenders.


The name of this gender comes from the word "archaeology", meaning "the study of human history, prehistory, and fossils".
