Incorrect Conflation With Second Mythogender

On December 9, 2020, the term was incorrectly conflation with a term of the same name, likely coined by a different person, and was treated as though it was a second definition for the other term intended by the coiner.3 This misinformation was posted by LGBTA Wiki user Cryptocrew.

The term was originally incorrectly credited as just a second definition not coined by a different person, as though it was intended to be an alternate name by the coiner of the other Mythogender. While a link to this Mythogender's coining post was added in a February 24, 2021, edit to the page made by LGBTA Wiki user Vaporwavejuiice,4 it was still treated as an alternate definition by that terms coiner.

The combination with the lack of information on the coiner and the only link on the page being to the MOGAI-Monarchs post makes it seem as though that version of Mythogender was coined by Mod Em, rather than being coined by an apparently unknown individual.

It's unknown where this misconception came from, nor if/when the page will be corrected.
