I suspect most people find the ever-increasing plethora of labels highly confusing (I hadn't even heard "demigirl" before reading your article) and on that basis, the last thing we need is more of them.

But, I get that at the same time people understandably want to be described (or to self-describe) correctly and precisely. It's difficult to know where the balance should be struck, but in the long term I guess usage will sort it out.
