What isn’t Nonbinary?

In 2021, this may seem like a silly question. Nonbinary is to be not binary, but is it all it means? We could flesh it out in commonly phrased prescripts like, “nonbinary is to be something in between, outside of, or some combination of a man or a woman.” But that definition, while true for many under the enby umbrella, doesn’t sit well with me because it requires a juxtaposition of the binary to make sense of nonbinary.
