A term very similar to agender but with a stronger emphasis on completely lacking a gender. Genderless people may or may not transition physically, legally, or socially. Categorically, genderless people are considered under the non-binary and transgender umbrellas but may or may not identify with those terms individually. Those decisions are based on their understanding of their relationship with gender and their access to transitioning within their culture.
e.g. Axel told his partner that even though he uses he/him pronouns, he is actually genderless and prefers to not be called a man.
