ambigender (adj.)

Like the words ambidextrous, ambivert, ambiguous and ambisexual — ambigender implies a combination of opposites, in this case masculine and feminine. The ambigender individual may swap readily between male or female modes in their social relationships, using a combination of masculine and feminine traits, in ways that affect how other people read their gender over time.

With this non-binary gender identity, an ambigender person feels a need for expression and/or recognition as both male and female, or both masculine and feminine, but usually preferring a degree of gender ambiguity. This is similar to bigender, except that bigender does not necessarily imply ambiguity or androgyny. An ambigender identity, may be either fixed across a continuing experience of masculine and feminine, or experience genderfluid shifts across that range.

As a gender expression, ambigender refers to an androgynous look which might be read as either male or female, depending on context, words, behaviour or mannerisms. A clearly ambigender appearance can easily tip towards a male or female presentation, by simply adding or removing minor gender cues.
I feel most comfortable when people have difficulty gendering me. When I get a mixture of "he", "she" and "they" pronouns, without even changing my clothes, that's a good day; I guess I'm ambigender.
