    Hey Spuds! Hope you’re not too fed up with this by now. I don’t think theres any point in chucking a barrage of hate over this tbh, there’s obviously something going on (trans or not - it’s not up to us to say), and even if there isn’t, it’s a waste of time to just shout without being constructive. What did need to happen though is calling out damaging wording and misinformation.
    Hope you liked the video xx

      She sounds like she's still really struggling to figuring herself out and should of really say down and chatted to Shane first before doing this 😬

      Gender identity refers to a personal identification with a particular gender and gender role in society. The term woman has historically been used interchangeably with reference to the female body, though more recently this usage has been viewed as controversial by some feminists.[24]

      There are qualitative analyses that explore and present the representations of gender; however, feminists challenge these dominant ideologies concerning gender roles and biological sex. One's biological sex is directly tied to specific social roles and the expectations. Judith Butler considers the concept of being a woman to have more challenges, owing not only to society's viewing women as a social category but also as a felt sense of self, a culturally conditioned or constructed subjective identity.[25] Social identity refers to the common identification with a collectivity or social category that creates a common culture among participants concerned.[26] According to social identity theory,[27] an important component of the self-concept is derived from memberships in social groups and categories; this is demonstrated by group processes and how inter-group relationships impact significantly on individuals' self perception and behaviors. The groups people belong to therefore provide members with the definition of who they are and how they should behave within their social sphere.[28]

      A protester holding a flyer with the words "Gender is like that old jumper from my cousin. It was given to me and it doesn't fit" at a rally for transgender equality in Washington D.C. in 2013
      Categorizing males and females into social roles creates a problem, because individuals feel they have to be at one end of a linear spectrum and must identify themselves as man or woman, rather than being allowed to choose a section in between.[29] Globally, communities interpret biological differences between men and women to create a set of social expectations that define the behaviors that are "appropriate" for men and women and determine women's and men's different access to rights, resources, power in society and health behaviors.[30] Although the specific nature and degree of these differences vary from one society to the next, they still tend to typically favor men, creating an imbalance in power and gender inequalities within most societies.[31] Many cultures have different systems of norms and beliefs based on gender, but there is no universal standard to a masculine or feminine role across all cultures.[32] Social roles of men and women in relation to each other is based on the cultural norms of that society, which lead to the creation of gender systems. The gender system is the basis of social patterns in many societies, which include the separation of sexes, and the primacy of masculine norms.[31]

      Philosopher Michel Foucault said that as sexual subjects, humans are the object of power, which is not an institution or structure, rather it is a signifier or name attributed to "complex strategical situation".[33] Because of this, "power" is what determines individual attributes, behaviors, etc. and people are a part of an ontologically and epistemologically constructed set of names and labels. For example, being female characterizes one as a woman, and being a woman signifies one as weak, emotional, and irrational, and incapable of actions attributed to a "man". Butler said that gender and sex are more like verbs than nouns. She reasoned that her actions are limited because she is female. "I am not permitted to construct my gender and sex willy-nilly," she said.[25] "[This] is so because gender is politically and therefore socially controlled. Rather than 'woman' being something one is, it is something one does."[25] More recent criticisms of Judith Butler's theories critique her writing for reinforcing the very conventional dichotomies of gender.[34]

      Social assignment and gender fluidity
      See also: Sex assignment
      According to gender theorist Kate Bornstein, gender can have ambiguity and fluidity.[35] There are two contrasting ideas regarding the definition of gender, and the intersection of both of them is definable as below:

      The World Health Organization defines gender as the result of socially constructed ideas about the behavior, actions, and roles a particular sex performs.[3] The beliefs, values and attitude taken up and exhibited by them is as per the agreeable norms of the society and the personal opinions of the person is not taken into the primary consideration of assignment of gender and imposition of gender roles as per the assigned gender.[3] Intersections and crossing of the prescribed boundaries have no place in the arena of the social construct of the term "gender".

      The assignment of gender involves taking into account the physiological and biological attributes assigned by nature followed by the imposition of the socially constructed conduct. Gender is a term used to exemplify the attributes that a society or culture constitutes as "masculine" or "feminine". Although a person's sex as male or female stands as a biological fact that is identical in any culture, what that specific sex means in reference to a person's gender role as a woman or a man in society varies cross culturally according to what things are considered to be masculine or feminine.[36] These roles are learned from various, intersecting sources such as parental influences, the socialization a child receives in school, and what is portrayed in the local media. Learning gender roles starts from birth and includes seemingly simple things like what color outfits a baby is clothed in or what toys they are given to play with. However, a person's gender does not always align with what has been assigned at birth. Factors other than learned behaviors play a role in the development of gender.

      Jammidodger love you but I think this is gonna age badly. Saying that her experiences or reasons aren’t valid reasons are damaging. Trans people can say and do contradictory and confusing things. I don’t see how Trisha is any different. Also have you never heard of Pangender? Pangender falls under the transgender umbrella. Anyways, In the last drew years it’s been accepted that you’re trans if you say your trans and that Truscum are damaging to the trans community. It is very wrong to pick apart a trans persons coming out video and point out how certain things like not liking makeup has nothing to do with being trans or not. That can be true but guess what most trans people coming out videos ALWAYS has some examples that have more to do with gender expression than gender identity which are still tied together. Same thing with gay people. The only universal thing that makes a gay person gay is that they like the same gender. But every gay coming out stories has all these things that people could get mad at and say they are stereotyping themselves. Does playing with dolls make a boy gay. Hell no but you might hear, when I was little I always liked dolls more than trucks. I would play dress up with my moms clothes..... I liked the color pink... I got bullied for being different.... I liked hanging out with the girls....none of those things actually mean someone is gay. The only thing that makes you gay is that you like people of the same sex. It should be safe for all trans people to come out on YouTube without getting things picked apart and make someone feel stupid. This is such a bad look. The only people that have a right to make these types of videos are Blair White and Kalvin Garrah and TruSum gatekeepers..... there are 7 Billion people on this earth and every single person is different.... there are going to be so many people that are confusing and contradictory to you. People aren’t going to fit in neat little boxes and say the right perfect things. If you want the freedom to be who you are then let others be too. Also I don’t agree that gender and sexuality can’t be a choice. People like the narrative that it’s can’t be a choice because then they think that cis normative heterosexuals should accept homosexuals and transgender but look at Ancient Greece and how widespread homosexuality was. Also look at the increase of homosexuality in prison and in the military and in the priesthood and all boys schools and universities. There are different levels of transgender people in different countries and throughout history. Just because you felt like it wasn’t a choice doesn’t mean that others felt like they could choose to be transgender or not. Like in Iran. They are a hub for sexual reassignment surgery and gay men will choose to be transgender so they can be with men. In Thailand, ladyboys have been very accepted so they have a high rate of ftm. Lately there have been an explosion of ftm and some of them detransition. Aren’t detransitioners making a choice. Aren’t there people that identify as another gender and make a choice not to be transgender and transition and identity as cis?

      I'm new to your channel, in fact I just subscribed just before I wrought this message and I am a supporter? (I guess that's what I'd be called anyway) Anyway I have always been called a "Tomboy" and it's because I like boy cloths and boy hair cuts and such and it got to the point that my oldest sister would say "You're just a gay man trapped in a straight woman's body, it's okay" so I get some of her fillings but I don't agree with the video she made because like you said some of it is contradictory to other things she said anyway I'm just learning about this stuff myself but I already know I support all LGBT ( I think that's all of them right?) I'm from the 80's and 90"s when that acronym came about so I don't really know if their have been more added or not, all I know for sure is I have kids and I want them to know it's okay for them to be who they really are and don't hide it or change because of others. In fact my oldest boy is a "PANsexuall" now I don't know much about that other then he loves love and my oldest daughter is bie(don't know if I spelled that right) and I'm okay with both I think they should be able to love who their heart desires you know what I mean? Well I think I've taaaken up enough of your time so I'll go but just know I support you no matter what.

    What I’m ghinking she is not articulating properly is that she feels objectified by men and that she has been a target of straight men using her for her voluptuousness and when she hides her voluptuousness she feels safer that is what I perceive. She is confused but at the same time doesn’t know how to articulate and at the same time is wanting attention and using her diareah of the mouth to exploit her air headedness as if she is cute to get more clicks.

              Trisha Paytas is always like this... I think she's just genuinely confused and I agree that she put it out on the internet way too early (and definitely should've done more research). But this is just kinda how she communicates. Even though the video definitely comes out confused and kind of thoughtless and offensive at parts, I seriously doubt she's trolling or being offensive on purpose.

                So what you're saying, I think, is that being trans is like having celiac disease. It's frustrating when you hear that someone's choosing to have a gluten-free lifestyle when you, as celiac, don't have a choice. I hope this doesn't come across as insulting. I'm just trying to understand. And this was the best way I could think of.

                    To me it sounds like she's tired of her fame and the male gaze. It's really mean I know, but I can't help but feeling she's doing this so that her friend Shane Dawson will make a documentary about her and she becomes more famous and relevant again. She needs some guidance for sure, because this sounded mostly ignorant. Maybe she should just cut her real hair first to see how it feels. Not that men don't like short hair, but because the short wig felt freeing to her.

                      She's just trying to explain her sexuality and gender identity. It's VERY complicated for many of us so why are you hating on her? Not everything is about you and how you feel. This is her.

                              I feel that she is very confused on how she feels and her identity in general and that it can be clearly seen from just hearing her speak and that maybe this reaction from you should’ve been saved for a later clearer more comprehensive video from her

                                  I think she needs to do a LOT more research on experiences, definitions, and terms. More than just having some gay friends.

                                    Also people can pry my nail polish and occasional makeup from my cold, dead hands. I'm a fabulous little bastard when I feel up to it/like it.

                                    Also I have no male privilege? The fuck? I have been told that I don't know what it is to be a woman, but also told I don't know what it is to be a man. Like... Okay... Sure?

                                    Omfg I don't chose to identify as a male, I am a male. A male on his period. I'm dying, send help.

                                      I think you did a great job of talking about this by pointing out the areas that were problematic (pretty much everything was problematic..) without attacking Trisha as a person. Just like, recognizing Trisha's uh, misconceptions and confusion. Trisha, as a dislike-er of labels, could have just been like, hey I identify as gender queer and left it at that and more of the community would have recognized and embraced it.. But gosh, that was a lot of labels that fall into separate categories that have no overlap.
                                      Anyway, great video! I liked it!

                                        Wow. She is exemplifies what society has done to define womanhood. Just because you don’t dress up everyday, wear makeup, or like men to harass you doesn’t mean you can’t be female. There are millions of women who don’t conform to these stereotypes who still feel empowered to be female. Just because you don’t feel like following gender stereotypes forced into you by society doesn’t mean you’re trans, gender fluid ect. She needs to read up on some terminology and find a therapist to help her.

                                                                            Trisha can identify in which ever what way, but I wanted to counter the spreading of misinformation, that really is very dangerous because a lot of the reasons described in Trishas video are also used by transphobes and TERFs to discredit trans people.

One problem is the gay men I know are attracted to manly men. I am very well aware I am talking from second hand sources but I have to point out some inconsistencies that I see. It is almost like I am watching the female version of Riley Dennis.

Either hitting on you or trying to give you advice on how to be more attractive to them so they will also hit on you.

I appreciate your commentary about what she is saying from the trans perspective, but this is part of a much longer and bigger history of mental health issues.

                                                                                            I struggled with gender since I was a child, and then I realized: you don't have to be feminine, or or fit into girly stereotypes to be female. I'm female, but I don't feel girly at all, like preferring boys clothes, and having mostly male friends, as well as feeling fake when I pretended to fit stereotypes. However, that just means I'm not super femminine, not a guy. There's a difference between gender, and expression. Yes, I do get uncomfortable with some girly things, like dysphoria, but it doesn't mean I'm a guy. It took me like, 15 or more years to come to terms with this, so it's really important to not force stereotypes. I have a lot of feminine guy friends, and they aren't girls, nor are they gay. Since that's a stereotype, they have struggled with questioning if either of those things apply to them. Moral of the story, stop basing your identity off of stereotypes as it only makes things worse, instead, look at the facts and talk to a therapist if you have questions. Or just ask a trans person what it's like? Just don't go based off of stereotypical gender roles, no one has to fit those, trans or not. There are tomboys, and feminine guys of all sexualities, and those are valid.
