The first time I got a real good look at Sam Smith was during his recent appearance on SNL. I thought he was absolutely adorable with a nice voice. I was like let me google this cutie. Chiiile! I give him props for losing that weight because he was quite the unattractive fattie. I would be afraid to be with him if there was a possibility off her looking like that again.

How does he know what being a woman feels like? I don't even think I know what it feels like for another woman except that we probably have some things in common, and really, what we have in common is likely to be how we're perceived and treated. That's what I assume any other woman knows about my experience, not more. I don't see the need to say that you feel nonbinary. Do you want me to treat or see you differently as a result? I'll use your pronoun, if that's what it is, but I'm not sure what else this information is supposed to signal.

He claims to feel equal parts male and female. Total horseshit and easy to disprove from his statement. "Female" for him is not being a wife, mother, daughter; it's "queer" stuff with makeup and clothes. Here's his quote from the article below (no need to give traffic to the piece-of-shit Logo website.)
“People don’t know this, but when I was 17, I remember becoming obsessed with Boy George and Marilyn,” Smith continues. “There was one moment in my life when I didn’t own a piece of male clothing, really.”
“I would wear full makeup every day at school—eyelashes, leggings with Dr Martens and huge fur coats, for two and a half years. I got teased a lot for it. But there were also people respecting me for walking around like that in my school.”
Later, while working in a bar in London, Smith was attacked and punched in the chest, “obviously just because of the way I looked,” he says. “But that never bothered me, because I had this barricade up.”

Why is it these boys loved dressing up as fabulous stereotypical women but don't want all the shit that comes with being a girl.
"When I was at school I'd hang out in the toilets with the girls and be so envious that they had periods and the stomach pain that came with it. I'd see the way the girls were judged by boys for the way their tits developed. The girls with big tits were called sluts and slags and the girls with flat chests were ridiculed. I desperately wanted to be one of those girls, objectified by the boys and male teachers. I heard stories about the girls who'd got pregnant at 15 or 16 and who's lives were ruined while the boys who fathered the baby enjoyed the rest of their lives with no consequences. I looked at my mother, earning less than my father, never expected to succeed or achieve anything in her own right and I was desperate to be that type of woman."

For goths and punks, growing out of it was as easy as wiping off the black lipstick and taking out the nose rings.
For the transtrending young women getting "top surgeries" (aka double mastectomies) coming back to reality will be more difficult.
Smith claims that he liked to crossdress, but I'd like to hear his thoughts on the non-binary youth who seek hormones and surgeries. Because, he is a text-book example of what trans critics have always said: Most gender dysphoria in children resolves itself into adulthood as homosexuality with no gender/sex change desired.

Genderqueer is embracing both sides equally. You are basically blowing up the concept of gender. You are fully male and female at the same time. A tomboy prefers boy things over girl things. A genderqueer person has no preference.

Completely correct r69. All genderqueer philosophy does is reinforce stereotypical gender roles. I try to be open minded but I don't understand it at all.
If you are a gay guy who likes wearing heels or make up sometimes, then be a guy who likes rocking heels or make up. The idea that if you do something "unmanly" you must then be "part woman" is just reinforcing the whole gender steoreotypes of "men must do this, and women must do this".

He talks about genderqueer people and the importance of pronouns. It's clear that he has no education outside of the current "gender studies" lingo and no life experience. He just discovered Sylvia Rivera and Paris Is Burning and wants transwomen of color to be recognized.

I'm glad we all seem to be in agreement how regressive this shit is. Doing activity "X" which may be associated with the opposite gender shouldn't mean anything other than you like doing activity X. Declaring it makes you a man / women is the OPPOSITE of what gay's have been fighting for i.e. a gay man fucking another man isn't secretly a women - he's still a MAN.
Gays fought to break ridiculous rigid gender norms.... and now all these fuckswits are trying to impose them. Stand up to this shit because the next leap is GAY man = wants to be a women / IS a women.

He essentially went to high school in drag a couple times so now he's "gender non-binary"? That would make 99% of every male athlete I knew in high school gender non-binary because I can't think of one year where I didn't see one of them dress up as a chick at least once for Halloween or something. That was a THING. And there was no reference to gender this or that. It wasn't considered sexist--it was just "fun", this thing that people don't really have anymore--and nobody gave a rat's ass.

The problem is with the word "gender" which is used to mean two completely different things - biological sex (as in male or female) and stereotypes about men and women's dress, behavior, social roles, etc.
Trans encourages this confusion because they want you to think they are the same. They definitely are not and it is pretty homophobic, sexist, stupid, and lacking in scientific knowledge to think so.
Can you be "fluid" in terms of what clothes you wear? Yes.
Can you be "fluid" in your biological sex? No.

The people coming up with this crap are the ones who romanticise oppression. But, given they've locked themselves away in their safe-space echo-chambers, they're protected against real oppression so they've created their own artificial form of it. That's why it's not just enough to claim to be genderqueer, but you also have to insist people use your personal pronouns - because that gives you the chance to scream "discrimination!" if someone doesn't. That's why they constantly create new rules, new definitions, even new words - to constantly confuse people and increase the likelihood they can trip someone up and then get the warm feeling that they're special enough to be oppressed.

There are two sexes: male and female. We are a sexually dimorphic species. There are genetic disorders and birth defects that can obscure one's biological sex, but at the genetic level, all mammals are intended to be either male or female. That is a fact. Behavior is a different discussion. While men and women might have some differences in behavior between the sexes, human beings, by and large, are more similar than dissimilar. Most of the differences in behavior attributed to men and women are a social construct. Not surprisingly, the idiots who buy into trans and non binary also refer to the social constructs of gender to support their lunacy.
There is nothing wrong with being a guy who fucks guys. Or a woman who likes to keep her hair short, armpits unshaved, and wear flannel. You can't change your sex/gender. Just be yourself.

If you are looking for gay perfection, then you have to ban everyone, you can't just pick the ones you don't like. It's fine not to like his music, but calling for an all-out boycott is hypocritical. Why aren't we banning the straights that pander like Nick Jonas and Harry Styles too?
