A '''demiboy''' (also called a demiguy, demiman, demimale, or demidude person) is a [[gender identity]] describing someone who partially identifies as a [[man]] or boy, regardless of their [[assigned gender]] at birth. They may or may not identify as another gender in addition to feeling partially a boy or man.
 
 
Demiboy can be used to describe someone [[AMAB|assigned male at birth]] or someone [[AFAB|assigned female at birth]]. The person can feel more or less connected to being a guy but not entirely. Depending on the person, they can expirence physical discomfort or [[dysphoria]].
 
 
Demiboys may also identify as [[demigender]], [[non-binary]] and/or [[transgender]]. The original coiner of the phrases [[demigirl]] and demiboy is unknown.
 
 
== History ==
 
The first know recording for someone referring to themself as a demiboy was August 12, 2010 by a user named ''Bad Patient'' on ''AVEN''
 
 
'''<big>“</big>'''...I said to myself that I can any word relate to me if I just stick a "demi-" in front of it. And then I realized that it might actually help me find a word for my gender identity. I've felt for some time that I may have too much of the masculine element in me to call myself agender and feel good about it — so maybe it would be a nice idea to call myself a demiguy. Demidude. Demibloke...'''<big>”</big>''' <ref group="Cite">https://www.asexuality.org/en/topic/52633-transwhatevers-of-aven/page/20/?tab=comments#comment-1615634</ref>
 
 
However ''Bad Patient'' goes on to say they weren't being serious.
 
 
In December of that same year, a user named ''bristrek87'' asked on ''AVEN'' about the term demigirl. They were looking for information on the term. The only information they had was from the ''Yada Wiki.'' <ref group="Cite">https://www.asexuality.org/en/topic/52633-transwhatevers-of-aven/page/728/?tab=comments#comment-1733093</ref>
 
 
In response, the user ''Am I Human'' claimed that the people who worked on the wikis for demigenders had been coined there. But no exact dates can be found, and the definition is slightly different to the most common definition used today. The given definition is "...either someone AMAB who feels the barest association with manhood or an non-binary AFAB person who is transmasculine, and feels a vague association with masculinity".
 
 
"Demigirl" and "Demiguy" were added to the ''AVEN'' Gender Definitions Masterlist on December 12, 2010. <ref group="Cite">https://www.asexuality.org/en/topic/159465-gender-definitions-masterlist-forum-ettiquette-and-faq/</ref>
 
 
By October 14, 2011, "demigirl" and "demiguy" had been added to the ''Genderqueer Identities & Terminology'' page of the popular blog ''Genderqueerid''. <ref group="Cite">https://web.archive.org/web/20111014042115/http://genderqueerid.com:80/gq-terms</ref>
 
 
The blog owner, ''Marilyn Roxie'', had collected data for a survey of genderqueer people that year, (September 15 - October 15) and added demiboy and demigirl as options. Nine people selected "demiboy", and seven people selected "demigirl". <ref group="Cite">https://genderqueerid.com/gqhealth</ref>
 
 
This lead to an increase in awareness and by early 2014 the prefix demi- was commonly known in relation to genders. At an some point between October 2011 and 2014 the common definition of demiboy shifted from the previously stated definition to "someone who is partially a boy".<br />
