“I have to get comfortable with the fact that I am kind of effeminate sometimes–or really effeminate sometimes. That I want to paint my nails. Overcoming all those stupid rules that society embeds in you as a kid about gender and sexuality is a conscious task. I have almost exclusively LGBT people around me [now]. That instilled a sense of confidence in me. That I have every reason to be proud of who I am.”

  1. If Troye has a Problem with it and feels himself uncomfortable, he should change the people around him. It May be difficult, but He has to work on this.

    1. Just curious, but WHY do you capitalize (upper-case) the words, Problem, May and He?

      That’s the way “god” and bible obsessed people write — to ’emphasize’ words/concepts that don’t need to be nor should be with correct grammar.

          1. Jim Straw has it right. Critical thinking is nothing more than thinking about being critical of you.

        1. @horsey:

          Congratulations! You’ve just won the Donald Trump Most Stupid “Tweet” Prize.

      1. It’s quite easy. I’m working with a tablet inthe momen. The shitty autocorrection is working against me 😏

  2. I never experienced him as particularly feminine and I followed his YouTube videos for at least 5 years. He wasn’t butch by any means, but not swish or flamboyant either . . . not that would have been a problem either.

  3. Interesting on how so many blame their ignorant writing on “autocorrection.” So, why didn’t “autocorrection” correctinthe momen.“?

  4. Do remember the English teachers writing that the original “a more perfect union” is not correct because ‘perfect’ is not possibly more than it self. The English teachers fail for three VERY essential reasons. 1) — The word ‘more’ so in use here means a better than now which is less than perfect. Here as it is in use here means a more towards a perfect. Extremely common use of terms. BUT there is 2) — There is no such thing as a definite perfect, only the idea of a one. The create of some thing more towards some idea of a perfect is as exact as any one can get. 3) the phrase is “In order to form a more perfect union” is a legal term. f u English teachers. 4) Language is what linguists study but not to declare of any correct form of.
