Simply put, Demi Lovato grew tired of being addressed as “they” rather than “she.”
Ms. Lovato was one of the first well-known figures to openly identify as “nonbinary” and to use the plural pronoun “they” rather than the singular pronoun, which forces a choice between “he” and “she.”
The popular American singer who is best known for her famous song “Cool for the Summer” declared in 2021 that they identify as non-binary and will use they/them pronouns. In an effort to avoid having to explain herself all the time, they chose to switch to using she/her pronouns last year.
The 30-year-old singer said in an exclusive interview with G2 Hype Spain (translated to English from Spanish), “I constantly had to educate people and explain why I identified with those pronouns. It was absolutely exhausting.”
“I just got tired. But for that very reason, I know that it is important to continue spreading the word.”
I deal with it every day. For instance, in public restrooms. Despite the fact that I don’t quite relate to it, having to use the women’s restroom.
Lovato proceeded by saying that people frequently experience discomfort when given just two alternatives for indicating their gender on official documents or forms.
You only have male or female choices, and I don’t think that makes any sense.
Additionally, Lovato expressed her desire for more gender-neutral locations, saying, “I would feel more comfortable in a genderless bathroom.”
Lovato revealed to fans that they would be using they/them pronouns moving forward after they came out as non-binary in 2021.
On social media, the musician revealed to their followers that they had recently been “doing some healing and self-reflective work” that had finally caused them to reevaluate their gender identification.
They started by saying, “I want to use this opportunity to share something extremely personal with you. “I’ve been doing some healing and self-reflective work for the past 15 months, and it’s through this work that I’ve realised I identify as non-binary.
Having stated that I’ll formally switch to using the pronouns ‘they/them’. This, in my opinion, most accurately captures the fluidity I experience in my gender expression and gives me the opportunity to feel most real and true to the person I both know I am and am continually discovering.
