hi there! i need some help, i think. i've known i'm nonbinary for a long time, it's just.. i don't really know what to call myself. i have days where i feel like a girl, or days where i feel like a boy, but most of the time i don't feel like anything. i don't think agender seems like the right word, though.. do you think genderfluid is a good word for me?

genderfluidity:

You could call yourself genderfluid if you like.  There are lots of other genderfluid people who sometimes don’t have a gender.  

You could also call yourself agender if you like—if you’re genderless enough of the time that it seems fair to you to round up/down to agender, there’s nothing wrong with that.

Or maybe you could use the terms graygender, like mostly agender but not quite, or agenderflux, or agenderfluid, or mostly agender, or libragender, or librafluid, or demiagender, or meta-agender, or para-agender, or genderflux, or fluidflux, or subfluid.  I’m just looking around and throwing stuff out there now, if you’re really looking for a word that closely describes your gender experience.

Mostly the definitions don’t quite fit, but they could maybe be close enough.

Basically it’s your choice, and it’s okay to call yourself something that isn’t a perfect fit.  Most of our genders are a little different from each other anyway, even when we group ourselves under the same category.

Here are some other people who seem to have similar experiences as you.

i don’t understand why people don’t like theatre. It’s the greatest work an actor can do. It’s standing bare in front of an audience, manufacturing all those emotions night after night. There’s no space for flaws that can be cut off on the editing room. It’s telling a story without a green screen and different locations. It’s just the raw talent of all people involved and it makes me very sad that it’s not apreciated enough
