You could be non binary. An example that falls under the non binary umbrella term is agender. Agender has different definitions and each person's definition is different.

There is gender fluid which means that basically some days you feel like a Girl and other days you feel like a boy. They don't really specify themselves as one gender or the other.

There are transgenders. genders who feel trapped in the wrong body. They should be accepted in our society. I understand that many religions condemn that, but this is something we should talk about.

There are a lot: you can be a demiboy/girl, which means you partially identify with one of the binary genders, you can be agender, genderless, nonbinary, genderfluid, genderflux, bigender, trigender, polygender, genderqueer, or many other things! There are a lot of genders out there; a good place to look for explanations is http://nonbinary.org/wiki/List_of_nonbinary_identities Best of luck, may you find a term that fits you!

Non-binary or gender queer. As far as I know, these are the two that people who don't identify as either male or female identify themselves as. I believe, however, that labels are just a way to have some sort of "organization" in a person's mind. Being confronted with ambiguity, people get confused and want to demand clarity on what or who you identify as. What ultimately matters though is how you see yourself, so you might not even end up feeling like you fit into being non-binary or gender queer or any other gender, but that's okay.

Nonbinary is the blanket term. But there's things such as genderfluid, where it shifts from day to day. And agender, where you feel like neither.

It's completely normal to get confused during the stage of getting to know yourself. You may be identified as agender a.k.a. genderless. Or you may be just confused. You don't have to always identify yourself as something. You are you.

Maybe non binary would make sense for you. It is when you are neither an boy or a girl. You do not necessarily have to identify as one or the other.

There are many gender fluid individuals just like you! And it is completely normal to feel this way. Even people who identify as a male or female can have moments of gender fluidity and not even recognize it. Don't see yourself as something "other" than a man or a woman, instead recognize that these labels don't define all that you are, and accept that its okay to need to change them from time to time.

Everybody feels different. We all have our own preferences and sometimes other people do not fit into them. The thing is that you need to find you. No one else can do that. Whether you choose to identify as one gender or another you need to find out what you want. So to answer the question of what other genders there are, does it really matter? Create your own gender. Make your gender something that reflects who you are. Not everyone identifies as a boy or girl or they. Some people create a whole new category just for them.

If you don't identify 100% as either a boy or a girl, your identity lies in the non-binary spectrum. Non-binary people do not identify as entirely male or female. It's a large spectrum, every non-binary person has a different identity with different and sometimes variable degrees of masculinity and femininity. There are also agender people, who don't identify with any gender at all, to any degree. Only you can understand what definition describes you better, but I also suggest to get in the contact with the non-binary community, that can be extremely helpful in helping you understand the reality of non-binarism and figuring out if it sounds like you.

I'm sorry you're struggling with your gender identity. It must be very trying and confusing. Thank you for reaching out to us. There is agender (no gender at all), a demigirl/demiboy (where they identify with one gender more than the other), non binary (neither a girl, nor a boy. They're not bound by the usual gender binary in their gender identity and expression). There's genderfluid, where the gender of the person often changes and they feel more or less like a particular gender from time to time) and there's genderqueer, which is an umbrella term for everyone for everyone who identifies other than being Cisgender. You can identify in any way, and you can always choose to not label yourself. It doesn't make your gender identity or its expression less valid. In the end of the day, you're a beautiful human. ♡
