Halsey identifies as "she/they". So I'm curious as to what the problem is if an article chooses one or the other. She is a narcissist who thinks the world revolves around her.

A quote from her from the story...utter nonsense, hypersensitive to the point of being ridiculous:

"No matter how many tears I've shed because I’m not connecting with my family or my culture in a way that I would like to, or because the waitress thinks I'm the babysitter when I go out with my family," Halsey said. "None of that would compare to the tears that I would shed for presenting phenotypically Black and the disadvantages and the violence that I would face because of that."

Only in this way can my awesomly important gender identity be suitably expressed. in all its kaleidoscopic senses

It was very surprising. Being genderqueer and having blue hair and renaming oneself Rhyleei is more of a left thing, but parents who believe in a strict mode of public presentation between males and females tend to be of the right and tend to force their children into defined gender roles to erase their homosexuality.

The PROBLEM is when people have multiple sets of pronouns you’re supposed to use both sets interchangeably depending on the person’s mood and what pronoun they feel like that day. You’re not supposed to make the choice for them and just randomly pick one. YOU don’t get to choose. They do! Allure didn’t ask and took the woman’s choice away from her. She was right to lash out after that gross violation.

R126 To be fair to Miss They, American culture is very bizarre with racial labeling. The illogical " one drop " rule still holds a surprising amount of power in the U.S. In the viewpoint of many Americans, someone with 80 percent European ancestry and 20 percent African could be considered black and yet there are plenty of AA individuals with up to 30 to 40 percent euro ancestry and no one calls them white. Scientifically it makes no sense but it's deeply ingrained in our culture.

I read a blind saying "they" were spotted at a club repeatedly asking where their cocaine went. They continued to have it the whole time... just like the last time.

[quote]"No matter how many tears I've shed because I’m not connecting with my family or my culture in a way that I would like to, or because the waitress thinks I'm the babysitter when I go out with my family," Halsey said.

Uh, like I'm sure the waitress turned to her and said, "Oh, you must be the babysitter," or "You sure are bossy for a babysitter."

You know, I’ll bet that waitress never even ASKED about Halsey’s pronouns, not even once.

I just read an exchange in which someone said that they don't know how to use she/they pronouns without offending the person in question, so they would just use "Halsey" instead. A TRA responded that avoiding pronouns altogether is even more invalidating and transphobic than not alternating the pronouns correctly. They're just going to annoy more and more people if they keep acting like this.

They act this way because they're already annoying and people avoid them. "My Pronouns" is a desperate plea for attention.

I am nostalgic for fierce GAY LESBIAN activism of the 80s. Yes it was necessitated by a plague, of course I wish there had not been the plague but I have powerful memories of men and women fighting a real fight for survival and respect. Not ….validation.

I was a kid back then. My mom (RIP) was a lesbian activist. I met many fascinating gay men and women who affected the course of my life for the better.

I’m all for genderfuck, but god it needs a strong attitude.

Twitter trans twats just seem so weak.
