Traditionally, this word is defined as another word for an androgynous person, or a person with intersex genitalia. Androgyne is also a word for a non-binary gender identity that exists in the rough middle of the gender spectrum between "male" and "female" presentation and identity. Androgyne people often seek to wear androgynous types of clothes to reflect their gender. Not all Androgyne people dress this way, but it is the trend. Neutral pronouns are usually used by these people, but it is not always the case.

Androgyne is the "neither" as well as the "both" when it comes to gender identities, as to say, it is both equally feminine and masculine, while being neither of them at the same time. If the color red was the most masculine , and the color blue was the most feminine, Androgyne would be light purple. Not a perfect mix of red and blue, but there are elements of both present, while there is a third element presence that holds no heraldry to masculinity or femininity (i.e., the color white, representing "non-binary gender", making it a light purple). Roughly less than 0.1% of the current US population identify this way, but that's still a lot of people (this is a rough estimate made after observing "Transgender Population Size in the United States: a Meta-Regression of Population-Based Probability Samples" by Esther L. Meerwijk, PhD corresponding author, and Jae M. Sevelius, PhD).
Max is an androgyne person, and they prefer neutral pronouns. | Androgyne folks are pretty neat; a lot of them seem to challenge traditional concepts of gender with their fashion choices by blending typically "male" and "female" fashions together to create something new. | There are a lot of non-binary gender identities out there, androgyne being one example.

An individual who feels they do not properly fit into the gender roles ascribed by society to males and females. Often feels as though their gender is beyond the understanding of these limiting societal factors and seeks to free themselves from that which limits them by dress in androgynous clothing and attempting to appear on the outside as they feel on the inside.
