(adjective | demi-, prefix, e.g. demiboy, noun | demigirl, noun)
Someone who is a specific gender on some level but not completely. For example, someone who is a demigirl identifies at least partially with being a girl or woman but not completely. Demigender people may or may not transition physically, legally, or socially. Categorically, demigender people are considered under the non-binary and transgender umbrellas but may or may not identify with those terms individually. Those decisions are based on their understanding of their relationship with gender and their access to transitioning within their culture.
e.g. Anna identifies as a demigirl because while she does feel some parts of her gender align with womanhood, there are other parts of her gender that do not.
