For example, in gender identity, genderflux refers to an individual whose sense of gender identity fluctuates and changes over time. In bisexual+ identities, this could refer to the changing levels of attraction one has over one gender than another; for example, one could find themselves more attracted to one gender than another for a period of time, and find that such levels change on a shifting basis.
One should not consider fluctuating sense of self or attraction as evidence that static, firm identities do not exist, nor should they view them as evidence that non-cishet identities are phases. Just because one’s gender identity or sexual attractions may be fluid, does not mean that everybody else’s are.
