For some, gender expression is an ongoing conversation and is a constantly evolving experience. For singer Demi Lovato, embracing her feminine side led the former Disney child star to adopt using she/her pronouns again after going only by they/them (for a nonbinary identity) for the last year. Here's why she chose to update her pronouns ...
“I’ve actually adopted the pronouns of she/her again with me,” she announced on a recent episode of the Sprout podcast, per JustJared.
She explained that they /them was more comfortable in the past because, as she put it, “I’m such a fluid person…. I felt like, especially last year, my energy was balanced and my masculine and feminine energy so that when I was faced with the choice of walking into a bathroom and it said, ‘women’ and ‘men,’ I didn’t feel like there was a bathroom for me because I didn’t feel necessarily like a woman. I didn’t feel like a man. I just felt like a human. And that’s what they/them is about. For me, it’s just about like feeling human at your core.”
However, more recently, the singer revealed that using the pronouns she/her also feel comfortable with the journey that she is on.
“Recently I’ve been feeling more feminine, and so I’ve adopted she/her again,” said Lovato on Sprouts.
