"Clovergender" is a fake gender identity term for pedophiles who supposedly identify as children. The term was coined by members of 4chan as part of an internet hoax campaign to discredit sexual minorities and LGBTQ activists.


On December 31st, 2016, several threads announcing the creation of a "new gender to troll social justice warriors" surfaced on 4chan, urging participants to create "propaganda images" and sock puppet accounts to spread a hoax that pedophiles were identifying as "clovergender" to legitimize themselves
