The atrinary flag.

Atrinary, Aternary, or Atertiary (abbreviated AT) is an umbrella term referring to any genders that are completely unrelated to maleness, masculinity, femaleness, femininity, neutrois-ness, or neutrality, and are nowhere in between those things, while also not necessarily being genderless (although agender individuals may also identify as atrinary). An atrinary individual may feel a strong sense of gender, however that gender is completely unrelated from the gender trinary.

The Gender Trinary

The gender binary refers to men and women, while the term non-binary encompasses all genders that are not strictly man or woman. However, non-binary includes genders that are in between male and female (such as androgyne), as well as genders that are in some way related to masculinity or femininity, (such as proxvir and juxera). The term abinary was created to refer to any genders which are completely unrelated to masculinity or femininity and is nowhere in between. Examples of abinary genders include neutrois, aporagender, agender. Abinary genders are often called "unaligned" and are often related to neutrality.

The "gender trinary" refers to this trifecta of masculine genders, feminine genders, and neutral genders. Atrinary, therefore, refers to any genders which are completely removed from the concepts of masculinity, femininity, and neutrality, or anything in between them. Maverique, some aporagenders, and many xenogenders are examples of atrinary genders. By definition all atrinary genders are also abinary, but not all abinary genders are atrinary.
