Ijusgender incorrectly refered to as "Ljusgender" on the LGBTA Wiki1 is an Objegender defined as "gender related to candles."2

It was redefined as "a xenogender where one feels a strong connection to candles or things related to candles such as burning out or they feel related to wax as their gender. Ljusgender is not a genderflux identity like candylic- both are connected to candles, but ljusgender is specifically a xenogender for feeling connected to the properties of candles, not connecting candles to their gender fluctuation."3
