So in my story I want one of the MC’s sister to have a non-binary partner. Someone cisgender may want to be called “girlfriend” or “boyfriend” and I’m just wondering if there’s a term like that for non-binary people. I did some research and found “enbyfriend”? So yeah basically what terms could I use for the sister to refer to her partner as?
Hey!! I’m non-binary! usually I just have whoever I’m dating refer to me as their partner. However, some of my NB friends prefer to be called a girlfriend or a boyfriend. But it really goes from person to person. So for me, because I’m agender, I much prefer “partner,” but i also know both “girlfriend” and “boyfriend” can be used if and only if that someone is ok with it ◡̈
Like the others said, just partner would work fine. But I guess it depends on what the person prefers. Some don’t mind girlfriend or boyfriend, others go by enbifriend (which I think sounds kinda cute lol ) but it’s totally up to you.
Thanks for including a nonbinary character in your story! I’m always open to answer questions. I actually thought I was nonbinary before realizing I identified more fully as a trans women. It’s a process of self identity. And I also like girls which I didn’t think I could as trans women, but through self discovery I truly learned that love is love.
Hi! Non-binary person here! As everyone here said, partner is good enough of a term. But as someone else said, in real life, it varies from person to person.
Some people like myself are fine with being called girlfriend, or others are fine with being called boyfriend, but if it’s neither of those terms they want to be called, partner is just fine. It’s always very good to ask though!
If you have any other questions, you’re more than welcome to ask!
So I’m nonbinary and use they / them pronouns and prefer other gender neutral terms. I would prefer to be called partner instead of bf or gf. “Enbyfriend” is kinda cute though ngl.
Also I think it’s so cool that you’re including a nonbinary character in your story! There isn’t a ton of representation on episode for nonbinary people!
