The gender-tracking ovoid or "gender egg"
The outermost dotted line is the infinite variety of experience and expression — the plane of consistency. The solid line just inside this is the shifting field of any given subject's near-limitless choice of possible genders. The infinite variety of expression and experience is a supersaturated fluid in which semisolid objects - or genders - having precipitated, cluster and mingle around affinity and proximity.
At certain points, both binary and Other genders may achieve deterritorialization and produce lines of flight that expand the infinite variety of experience and expression outward. This deterritorialization ruptures the edges of the plane of consistenecy, allowing pockets of air to seep into the fluid gender-plane. This is the location where signification & signifying become troubled, where agender beings exist.
The model's axes and the field of play have little to do with signification (unlike binary and spectral models of gender). Instead, it's the proximity and affinity between genders that produce emergent qualities of cohesion and meaning for Beings situated in the model. Likewise, a Being may exist at multiple coordinates, including far outside the infinite variety of expression and experience.
