do i need a gender identity? gender feels complex. i don't rlly care what im perceived as and i dont really prefer to be perceived as a boy rather than a girl or vice versa. i hate my chest and having a period. as for pronouns he/him is wrong and she/her fits i guess and they/them does too. i can't find a label that really clicks. any thoughts?

No, you don't need one.

But having no gender, agender, is a gender identity.

Even the label that describes the feeling that gender identities do not apply to oneself, quoigender, is amusingly often called a gender identity again.

I know there's a lot of pressure to have labeled identities (at least I feel there is), but gender is such a personal, complex experience that the concept of labeling oneself and having defined identities certainly won't appeal to everyone. It's perfectly okay to not have any identities or labels.
