When the princess first ascended the throne as queen, she displayed a level of lenience never before seen in the palace. The royal advisers and other underlings soon began to collude with one another, believing her to be naive, and hoping to take advantage of her mansuetude. However, she was not such a fool as they had imagined.
As many of you know, sapphic/achillean are commonly used words to indicate women & lunarians who experience attraction towards women/men & solarians who experience attraction towards men. There’s also feminamoric and viramoric, for nonbinary people to describe their attraction towards women/men, particularly because for many of us, our attraction does not fit under the male/female or gay/straight binary.
However, in terms of non-orientation words that can be used to describe nonstraight attraction, we haven’t yet found any that don’t require a particular experience with gender. So we made some, that can be used as umbrella terms for everyone attracted to a specific gender (or genders) or identifiers to describe nonstraight attraction to a specific gender (or genders) without any implications regarding the gender of the person using the term !!
1. Femaric (Black-white-pink): Umbrella term for everyone attracted to women/girls. Can be used as an identifier by anyone who experiences nonstraight attraction to women/girls.
2. Mascic (Black-white-blue): Umbrella term for everyone attracted to men/boys. Can be used as an identifier by anyone who experiences nonstraight attraction to men/boys.
3. Enboric (Black-white-green): Umbrella term for everyone attracted to nonbinary people. Can be used as an identifier by anyone who experiences nonstraight attraction to nonbinary people.
