Let’s talk Demi.
We’ve talked Demisexual before, but I wanted to branch out to the other (even lesser known) Demi’s out there. There’s quite a few so I’ll keeping each short and I will likely skip out on a few here. Being that these terms are less common, this post took some research and speaking with a few individuals. if any of this information is inaccurate, please let me know and I will adjust.
𝗗𝗲𝗺𝗶𝗴𝗲𝗻𝗱𝗲𝗿 – Umbrella term for everything we talk about here. Keeping it simple in describing as having a base identity and being partially, but not wholly connected to a certain gender. Demigender typically falls under the Non-Binary umbrella. Pronouns are usually They/Them (always ask first).
𝗗𝗲𝗺𝗶𝗕𝗼𝘆 – Regardless of birth assigned gender, DemiBoy put simply means feeling partially, but not wholly masculine. Most common example would be a Non-Binary individual who slides a bit more on the male side, but does not fully identify as “Male”.
𝗗𝗲𝗺𝗶𝗚𝗶𝗿𝗹 – Same is above but “Female”.
𝗗𝗲𝗺𝗶𝗡𝗼𝗻𝗕𝗶𝗻𝗮𝗿𝘆 – An example would be a Male or Female that feels partially, but does not fully identify as “Non-Binary”.
𝗗𝗲𝗺𝗶𝗙𝗹𝘂𝗶𝗱 – This is where things get a bit more complicated. Trying to keep it simple, demifluid is like GenderFluid, but only feeling a partial connection to the associated genders. An example could be a individual who identifies with feeling more DemiMale, DemiFemale, and/or Agender at any given time.
𝗗𝗲𝗺𝗶𝗙𝗹𝘂𝘅 – “-flux” is under the “-fluid” umbrella and often refers to the intensity of a gender. An example could be an individual who identifies as both Agender and DemiMale, but the DemiMale identity fluctuates in intensity (50%->25%->0%).
𝗗𝗲𝗺𝗶𝗟𝗼𝘃𝗮𝘁𝗼 – She’s an actress/singer. Not relevant to Operation: Iris.
