There's agender (identifying with no gender) demigirl (identifying partly as a girl), bigender (identifying with two genders), genderfluid (gender can change daily) and there are more

It is completely understandable that you are confused about your gender; many people struggle with how to define their gender identity. This is because gender is a very fluid part of you. Here is a great resource on gender identity: http://www.thetrevorproject.org/pages/trans-gender-identity# Be well & I wish you the best of luck.

There is probably an infinite number of genders out there - some lie on a spectrum between what is considered "masculine" and what is considered "feminine", some are a combination of a few at once (bigender, trigender, etc.), some people's identities change over time (genderfluid), and some are outside of the spectrum, not identifying with a gender at all (agender). No matter how you feel in regards to your gender, it is a proper identity - be who you are!

That is fine! You do not need to identify as either boy or girl. Some people are agender, or genderfluid, or switch their gender identity from time to time. Do whatever makes you happy. There are no borders and you certainly don't have to conform to societal gender roles! Some Inuit folks have 4 genders, for example. You are who you are, so be who you want to be!

There's a variety of genders. There's bigender (a combination of the traditional binary genders), trigender or pan gender (a feeling of a third gender and/or all genders), agender (no specific feeling of gender), genderfluid (a fluctuating gender that can be any gender on the spectrum), demiboy (someone who is partly boy and partly an something else) and demigirl (someone who is partly girl and partly someone else). You can also identify as fully male and still be extremely feminine. Or identify as fully female and be extremely masculine. As you can see from the few genders I listed, there's more than just the binary genders. It's all about how you feel inside. you'll have to do some research and explore yourself to realise what you chose to identify as. But remember you don't have to identify as anything if you chose not to.

The big problem here, is that people think we need to fit in a "box". As an exemple; if you are born as a girl, they'll try to fit you in the "Girls" box. You'll be expected to behave in a certain way, dress in a certain way, and like specific things. It's all about the boxes. As those original two boxes weren't enough to everyone to fit (As you said, you don't feel like you fit any of them), the Q comminity createa a lot of other boxes. But the problem is still there! This problem resides on the boxes. Even if we have a variety of boxes because people needed more options, we're still forcing them to FIT somewhere. And to fit, we have to adapt, and in most of times, change, even if just a little bit. So please! Don't think you HAVE to be unconfortable to fit one of those boxes! We don't need boxes! They were built up! They're not natural. Society built them, but if we "unbuilt"(Is that a word? (I'm brazilian)) them, people won't have to be labelled! They won't have to change" They won't be expected to act, dress or live in a certain way... I know this would probably never happen, but I dream about a world where there are no boxes! I don't think we need more genders to force people to fit in one of them! We need no genders at all!

I don't know a lot about the topic but agender sounds right here. In the end gender is a very complicated concept, it is a social construct and no one can truly define gender or name all the gender there are. You are who you are and you don't have to conform or label yourself. You're still valid and you're certainly not alone.

There is a whole set of other identifiers such as agender, nonbinary, queer, or genderfluid. They cover people who feel like they are multiple gendered, no gendered or anything in between.

Depending on your culture and where you live, the possibilities are nearly endless. The reality is that many people find themselves somewhere on a spectrum. Think of a rainbow: if boys are the Red in a rainbow and girls are at the other end as the Blue or Violet, there are many possible colors in between! To list a few: androgyny, bigender, agender. But some people never find a label that they feel perfectly suits them, and that is fine too! It just means you are extra special, and are an extra color of the rainbow that there is not nearly enough of in this world!

this is very natural and common. Gender neutrality corresponds to a neutral gender identity or expression referred to as Neutrois

There are over 50 non-binary genders, but I'll focus on the more common ones: Agender: no gender Bigender: between male and female Genderfluid: gender may shift depending on mood or time Demigirl: part female - part something else Demiboy: part male - part something else Pangender: every gender Androgyne: not quite male of female or a mix of the two Epicene: lacks gender distinction, has both masculine and feminine parts but identifies as neither Genderqueer: unsure of gender / lacks specific definition / umbrella term for non-binary

There are many different genders, and just because you don't identify as a boy or a girl does not mean you don't have a gender. You could be non-binary, and there are many more.

Opposite to what you've might have learnt, gender is very fluid. There are many types of genders you could identify as, such as genderfluid or intersex. If you're looking for the specifications of each tag, google is your best friend!

Genderqueer is an all-inclusive term for genders that fall outside the traditional binary genders of male and female. I would say google 'genderqueer' to find out more about the different genders. Wikipedia may be of some use, as they have an article on genderqueer.

Well, there's agender! That's where you don't feel like either one but you might have some traces of each gender. Neutrois is where you feel you have no gender at all and you want to erase every trace of gender from your appearance. Androgynous has kind of a vague definition--you might feel like both, or neither, or something else. There's also a system, where you feel like an entire ecosystem of non-sentient beings represented by one personality (that one's pretty rare).

Agender, neutrois, bigender, non-binary, magiboy/magigirl. There's a lot of words out there and they all mean slightly different things. I recommend just looking under the "non-binary" category and finding which best suits your case.

You don't need to identify as either a man or a woman. There is such a thing as "gender fluid." Which is: having an overlap of, or indefinite lines between, gender identity; having two or more genders (being bigender, trigender, or pangender); having no gender (being agender, nongendered, genderless, genderfree or neutrois); moving between genders or having a fluctuating gender identity (genderfluid)

I am genderfluid. That means some days I identify as male, others as female. Another choice would be to identify as agender, or without any gender identity.

There are many other genders as far as the LGBT+ community goes, however the most common ones other than identifying as male or female, is genderfluid or agender. There are also other genders such as bigender, trigender, and many more :)

Well, there is a gender spectrum to keep in mind. Being in the middle of that spectrum is known as "bigender", and not feeling any gender is called "non-binary" or "agender". Having that gender move around (like one day you feel more like a guy, one day you feel more like a girl) is called "genderfluid". Feeling more like a girl but slightly like a guy is called "demigirl" and feeling more like a boy but slightly like a girl is called "demiboy".

There are tons of genders that aren't necessarily binary. There are some that are completely neutral, like agender (having no gender) or non-binary, and some (like demigirl or demiboy) that are more connected to a binary gender but not completely. Find the one you think fits best!

There is this " class group" called as asexual. Scientifically it means that you have no sex or gender but in our point of view, asexual means that you are not sexually attracted to either group. Though this not restrict you from being able to love someone but it is definitely harder.

Hello! To answer your question, there are so many other genders that aren't specifically male or female. I am genderfluid, meaning I don't specifically identify as either male or female, and that the gender I feel most comfortable in ranges from day to day. However, another gender identity is considering yourself to be 'agender' which literally means genderless or without gender. For more information, you are welcome to contact me, and for more information on gender identity visit: http://gender.wikia.com/wiki/Gender_Wiki For example, other genders are: ~Genderfluid/genderneutral ~Genderqueer ~Agender ~Non-binary Etc.

There is non-binary and gender-fluid. Non-binary is identifying as neither gender and gender-fluid is when you might be a gender one day, and another the other, sometimes neither or both
