Wait, There’s another one? (No offence). What’s demimale supposed to be exactly?

It can mean different things for different people. For some, demimale may describe an afab trans male who doesn't fully feel male. This may be because of his position in his transition e.g. pre-hormones and surgery, etc.
It can be used to describe someone who only partly identifies as male regardless of their sex. But at times, whether in public or private, the term "male" doesn't fit and there's this "otherness" that's neither male nor female (to be defined by the individual)

Why do people enjoy sub-sub-sub categorising themselves so much? Trans people are great. Can't we all just accept that human identity, consciousness and sexual preference are too complicated to be accurately defined? The logical conclusion of intersectionalism is the individual. Why do people need endless epithets to describe themselves? It seems to take all the fun out of communication.

Absolutely! Not everyone wants to self determine themself to a T.

Simultaneously, categorising oneself can help an individual to feel confident and valid in their identity, knowing someone else has felt exactly the same as them and coined a term to describe it. It may help to feel part of wider commuity, less isolated.

Furthermore, for some people labels can stimulate more respectful communication e.g. a demigirl may be comfortable with being called "sister" but prefer "they/them" pronouns.

But I agree that all of these terms to describe our identities only capture a part of who we all are and what we feel.

At the end of the day, it is the individual's choice to label their identity or not and in what way they do so and why. As long as their happy and not hurting anyone, is it really so problematic?

Hello hello. I have to say that I don't think TSR would be the best site to go on to find other trans people. There can be some unsavoury characters here.

I'd advise going to a nearby LGBT youth group or joining the Mermaids forums. You're more likely to find people who get you there.

I'm pretty stealth which is why I'm anonymous, but I'm another trans man. Nice to see that there is a population of trans people on this site.

A woman that became a man or a man that became a woman?
