Circa-binary, also called proximal identities, describes a system of non-binary genders and gender expressions that are similar to, or derived from, the binary genders, but are not the same as the binary genders. The closest equivalants to the binary genders are proxvir and juxera, and most other circa-binary genders are derived from these two.[citation needed]

The circa-binary gender have five main categories: masculinity, femininity, epicenity, androgyny and genderlessness. Any one of the first four (masculine, feminine, epicene, and androgyne) can be "approached" from the direction of any of the other three, and then also combined with any level of genderlessness. Each circa-binary gender describes how "close" one is to any given category.


  • IPA: ˈsərˌkɑː ˈbaɪˌnɛriː
  • Phonetic: SER-kah BAI-neh-ree


  • Proxvir: Near male, but not the same as a man. It can be approached from femininity, androgyny, or epicenity.
  • Juxera: Near female, but not the same as a woman. It can be approached from masculinity, androgyny, or epicenity.
  • Proxangi: Near androgyne. It can be approached from masculinity, femininity, or epicenity.
  • Juxtaneu: Near epicene. It can be approached from masculinity, femininity, or androgyny.

The above genders are experienced by people differently, depending on the alignment that they approach from. For example, a juxera approaching from masculinity may experience their gender differently than a juxura approaching from epicenity. As of right now, there are no specific terms to differentiate between these variations.
