Demi Lovato admits she uses ‘she/her’ pronouns again because policing ’they/them’ was ‘absolutely exhausting’ - The Blaze

Singer Demi Lovato revealed this week that she returned to using “she/her” pronouns because she found it “exhausting” to tell everyone all the time that she was a “they/them.”

In 2021, Lovato came out as “non-binary” and requested that fans use “they/them” pronouns when referring to her. One year later, Lovato added “she/her” to her list of personal pronouns because she had been “feeling more feminine.”

Now, Lovato says she resumed using “she/her” pronouns for an entirely different reason.

“I constantly had to educate people and explain why I identified with those pronouns. It was absolutely exhausting,” Lovato told GQ Hype Spain in a recent interview. “I just got tired. But that is why I know that it is important to continue spreading the word.”

Still, Lovato expressed feelings of oppression because, for example, most public spaces do not have gender-neutral bathrooms.

[Lovato has stated that] she feels pressured to identify as a “woman.”

“I see myself conditioned to choose ‘woman’ because there are no more options. I think this has to change. Hopefully with time there will be more options,” she said.
