Demigender- An umbrella for a gender in which one is partially, but not fully a given gender. It can also describe those who feel the barest connections to a gender, but not enough to fully identify as that gender. Demigender people may identify as another gender in combination with demigender. Demigender can also be an identity in itself, for people who feel a partial connection to the concept of gender in general. Demigender people often identify as nonbinary and may also identify as transgender.

A common misperception is that one who is demigender is partially a given gender and partially agender. While this can be the case, the "other part" of one's gender can be any gender or combination of genders.

The opposite of any demi- gender would be hyper- gender
