    I am trying to find a label that best describes my gender identity. I know that I don't have to label it but I would like to. If anyone on here identifies as a demigirl or demiboy, would you mind explaining your experiences? Or what is a demigirl or demiboy means to you? Only if you're comfortable on doing so of course.

    demigirl means you identify mostly as female and demiboy means you identify mostly as male

    Hi, thanks so much for your reply. I should have mentioned that I do know the definitions I'm just hoping to hear from people that can tell me more about how they knew they were demi and what it's like.

    I’ve used demiboy as one of several labels to best describe as close to my experience that I can get.... for me personally, what it means is that most of the time I feel like nothing, agender.. I don’t see myself as a man or a woman, or fitting into either camp or claiming one so adamantly from a personal or political standpoint.... I relate to pieces of both culturally, but I don’t really feel a personal attachment to either.... however, I do feel like masculinity portrays who I am very well. Even though I like a lot of feminine things, I express myself in ways that are more similar to how men do, how I behave, how I relate to the world, how I dress.. how I see my body too. I call myself a boy because it’s as close as I can get to describing myself with the language limitations that exist towards nonbinary people.

    To me being a demiboy (sometimes I am mostly agender) means I’m nearly a boy but not quite. It’s like a light dimmer that never goes up to full power. I’m not a girl and I’m not genderless (in those times) but I’m not a boy either, I’m nearly there but stopped before I reached the finishing line.

    Out of curiosity, what is missing for you then? like what is that thing that for you separate you from other boys and/or from being "fully" a boy?

    Nothing’s missing I’m just not quite a boy. I can’t explain it but at those times it’s like “I’m similar to you but not the same” I’m like 80% boy but I’m not missing the 20% it just doesn’t exist.
