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. 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.“?
