Of course! Being a boy or girl is generally just tied to the whole social concept, where the world tries to tell you that if you were born this way, then you must behave this way. But it's all just a concept, and it's totally normal to not feel like that fits you. There are a few genders that are outside of boy or girl, like agender, nonbinary, neutrois, or even just genderqueer. Or, you could just choose to not use a label at all, if that's most comfortable for you!
Yes! I think what you may be looking for is the term agender, where you feel you don't have a specific gender.
Yes, you can! You don't have to be a boy or a girl. If you're neither, you're probably nonbinary. There are lots of labels included in the term "nonbinary" that you can do research on, that way you can see if any of them fit you. And if you don't find any label that fits you, or if you don't want a label, it's perfectly okay too!
You can be whoever you would like to be, genderfluid and or non-binary. It is up to you who are not your parents or the people around you, just be yourself.
Yes, non-binary means that you identify as neither a girl nor a boy. Meanwhile, genderfluid means you identify as both.
There is a whole spectrum of gender. Some people identify with one gender, some identify with more than one, some people feel as though their gender identy fluctuates even within their own self. And there are a lot of people who don't identify with any gender. If you feel like you are a person, and neither a boy nor a girl, maybe do some research on the term "agender" and see if any of that info resonates with you.
Yes. Many people who feel the same as you identify as agender, meaning people who do not feel like any gender at all. If you feel like this, you are probably agender too. That's ok, it's a completely valid identity and you're not alone in this!
yep! You can be whoever you want to be. There's such this as genderqueer/genderfluid/agender/nonbinary people who either fluctuate between genders, dont consider themselves female or male, or don't assign themselves a gender at all!! Some people are also born as "intersex" individuals which means they are born with various/multiple/"opposite" sex characteristics that aren't commonly associated with their sex at birth. To be honest gender is a social construct created through forms of culture and isn't an actual thing of its own. There are three sexes including females, males, and intersex individuals. These terms solely relate to the sexual reproductive organs you are given at birth, nothing more. In conclusion, yes you can just consider yourself a person! Some people also use pronouns such as they/them (instead of she/her or he/his) !
