Where does genderflux come from?
Evidence for genderflux for “shifting between genders” (hence flux) dates back to at least 1994 concerning a Queer Pagans newsletter, and rocker Marilyn Manson was described genderflux in 2003.
Genderflux took off in 2014, thanks to Tumblr user Deergoths, who applied genderflux to experiences of variation in the intensity within a gender identity (rather than between). A 2016 Teen Vogue article on the changing lexicon of gender and sexuality helped spread the term.
The genderflux community has a rich vocabulary based on flux, including but not limited to boyflux, girlflux, bigenderflux, fluidflux, agenderflux, neutroisflux, nonbinaryflux. A person who identifies as girlflux, for instance, experiences a range of intensity of female identity, while an agenderflux person may experience various degrees of feeling any gender at all.
genderflux: a gender experience which changes in degree over time (sometimes /very/ that gender and sometimes less that gender)
this is not the same as genderfluid, because the gender(s) you're experiencing stay the same, it's only the intensity that changes

Who uses genderflux?
Genderflux is still by people in various genderqueer communities, especially online.
Okay so after nearly a year of questioning, I think that I'm Genderflux. It explains a lot, like how sometimes I feel like a girl and sometimes I don't feel I have a gender at all. And I spend most of my time in the middle of those two. It feels really good knowing that.

To help spread genderflux awareness, gender-fluid activist and fashion blogger Elliott Alexzander launched a clothing line called GenderFlux in 2015. The brand sells gender neutral t-shirts emblazoned with a variety of gender identities.
Gender Flux is also a 2015 short adult film which, according to Queerporn.tv, “brings gender fluid strap on fucking to its highest form.”
Genderflux is still debated in queer culture (not to mention rejected by transphobic people), though the zeitgeist in the 2010s favors allow people to self-identify their gender as they feel is right for them.

Genderfluid and genderflux are similar, but not the same. Genderfluid switches genders and genderflux does not switch but rather intensifies between agender and another gender. pic.twitter.com/4iIxzbWPV3
