Transfeminine is a term used to describe those who were assigned male at birth, but identify as more female than male. Transfeminine is often used as a catch-all term for all people assigned male at birth who identify as feminine of center, including MTF trans women, but the adoption of the term as an identity is a matter of personal preference. Those who identify as transfeminine, as opposed to simply as MTF or a woman, trans or otherwise, often place themselves feminine of center. That is, they identify more closely with femaleness than maleness, and generally desire a physical appearance that reflects this identification, but do not identify as wholly female or as a woman. This identity is similar to that of a demigirl in that demigirls often identify with femaleness or femininity, but only partially. It should be noted that "transfeminine" is not a descriptor of gender expression but of identity. Transfeminine people do not necessarily have to be stereotypically feminine in their interests or even presentation.
