MONONYMOUSWhat’s that??“In the same judgment, Patch was also allowed to change names, becoming mononymous — meaning only having one name instead of a given name and a surname.”#lunaticsrunningtheasylum History was quietly made in Oregon this month when a judge granted a Portlander’s request to become genderless.Patch, a 27-year-old video game designer, is likely the first legally agender person in the United States.The Multnomah County Court granted Patch a “General Judgment of Name and Sex Change” on March 10.

Not to be confused with transgender or genderqueer, agender people typically describe feeling that they have no gender identity whatsoever. While sex refers to biological features such as chromosomes, genitalia and hormones, gender is the expression of identity as male, female or somewhere in between. But agender people are not drawn to male or female identity — or any point along the spectrum.“As a kid, probably starting around age 6, gender didn’t make sense to me,” Patch told NBC News. “I was told ‘men were this, women were this.’ As a teen I learned about transgender people, and that didn’t seem like what I was.
