as an identity, it is an alternative term for agender, but can also refer to the vast array of gender identities that are partly genderless or neutral.
Elsewhere, genderless also refers to activities, clothes, traits, etc, that are seen in society as being gender-universal, that is, not prescribed, suited to or exclusive to one particular gender over another – that is, gender neutral.
Increasingly, some people are choosing to raise their children in a genderless/gender neutral way – that is, in a manner that does not prescribe gender norms or expectations.
