All the Gender Symbols




At one time human cultures recognized that there was more than just typical male and typical female.  Here are some of the names for intersex here: Intersex is what it is.  Although I feel that there are so many different variations of intersex that one can’t even describe them all with even these symbols, I felt it important to share that the male/female binary was not all we had in the past to describe us humans.   Here is the United Nations Intersex Fact Sheet.  

Many do not realize what all these gender symbols represent, so I will explain them here:

50px-Mars_symbol.svg.png The symbol for a male organism or man.  It is also the astrological symbol for Mars.

50px-Venus_symbol.svgThe symbol for a female organism or woman.  It is also the astrological symbol for Venus.

60px-Mercury_symbol.svg.pngThis symbol is often used to represent organisms which are both male and female; such as a flower, snail or true hermaphrodite organisms.   Although a human being can never have sperm and eggs both, this is also a sign used for some intersex people that identify themselves as hermaphrodite.  Last, it is the astrological sign of Mercury.

Male_and_female_sign.svg.png  This symbol represents both male and female, together.  It is often used to represent intersex people or organisms.  Sometimes it is used to symbolize transgender even, but not as common as the symbol below this one.

50px-Gendersign.svg.png  This symbol is the common sign used to represent transgender people or even non-binary people.

50px-Transgender_symbol_1.svg.png  This symbol is also used for transgender.  It is male with the stroke sign.


U+26A8.svg.png  This symbol represents “other gender”.  It is a vertical male symbol, with stroke sign.   It is also used to represent androgyny.

U+26A9.svg.png  This symbol is another one used for “other gender”.  It is a horizontal male symbol with stroke sign.

Gender-Symbol_Neutrois_Alternative_dark_transparent_BackgroundThis symbol represents neuter, neutrois, or no gender.  It is similar to the Venus Symbol.

50px-Asexual_symbol.svg  This symbol represents genderless, sexless, asexual, neutrois, or neuter.  Represents both Venus and Mars.

100px-Nonbinary_gender_symbol.gifThis symbol represents non-binary people.

100px-Gender-Symbol_Other_dark_transparent_Background.pngThis one represents “other gender”.

100px-Comet-sym.svg.pngThis one also can be used for non-binary.

Sexual orientations:  

50px-Heterosexuality_symbol.svg.png Female and Male Symbols, or Heterosexual.

50px-Female_homosexuality_symbol.svg.png Double Female Sign, or Lesbian.

50px-Male_homosexuality_symbol.svg Double male sign, or Gay.

As you can imagine couples can be of any mixture of the above symbols, not just this last three shown here.  For example, to represent the sexual orientation of my husband and I, it would merge these two together, like this:

Here is a blog that I wrote that teaches about the biological creation of some forms of intersex bodies: 

Seven Names for the SAME thing: Penis, Phallus, Clitoris, Phalloclitoris, Micropenis, Microphalus, and Clitoromegaly and Intersex is what it is.

Here I write about the sexual orientation of my husband and I:
