There are some folks who identify as non-binary or genderqueer but not trans, which I feel is valid. Though non-binary people are generally considered to be under the trans “umbrella”, they don’t have to be if it doesn’t suit them. If you don’t experience dysphoria and don’t desire to undergo any kind of social, legal, or physical transition, then I can certainly understand why you’d be reluctant to call yourself trans.
