an ethereal, vague gender that is like the “man in the moon” of the gender identity. This gender represents something far off from reality, though it has a comforting quality that reassures the user that there is a gender that can explain the far off object, like an “alien moon” in the identity. This gender, alternatively, can be a gender connected to the moon hanging in the sky, the sound of ocean waves at a calm, empty beach, and even the sound of bells as morning comes. Etymology: Chinese, “yuèzhōngrén“ (Standard Mandarin: 月中人) meaning “man in the moon”
