The Enby Logo (2022 Version, Pappy)

The terms enbylove and enbylover (EL) describe an attraction to non-binary youth. Enby is a neologism of the initials "NB," or "Non-Binary." Loved non-binary children and youths are called ELFs which is an initialism for "enby little friend." The term is said by Fediverse users to have entered use in 2019. In 2022, another term - Xiplove was said to have entered use on Fediverse, denoting attraction to Xenogender Youth.[1][2]

Rarely, if ever, exclusive

It should be noted that while BL and GL are often (but far from always) strongly preferential with respect to gender[3] EL is a label that generally signals the inclusion of non-binary youth in a person's pattern of attraction, as opposed to an exclusive preference for them. It is often based upon the identification of non-binary adults with non-binary youth, and has striking parallels throughout history.
