Demi Lovato returns to using female pronouns and explains why: "It’s all about respect"

Demi Lovato, who considers herself a non-binary person, recently revealed that she has returned to using female pronouns in her name. In an interview, she explained her reasons and reinforced the request for respect for those who do not identify with a gender.

The subject came up during the chat on the “Spout” podcast, and passed on by “Buzzfeed” this Thursday (04/08). She spoke about what led her to include the pronouns “she/her” (she/her) on her Instagram account; before, she used “they/them” (which, in translation, would be “elu/delu” in Brazil).

In the conversation, she called herself a “fluid person” and stated that, especially in the last year, she felt her “masculine and feminine energies” were in balance, which is not the case at this time. She recalled a situation that occurred in 2021 to exemplify.



“When I was faced with the choice of going into a bathroom and there were only ‘women’ and ‘men’, I didn’t feel like there was a bathroom for me because I didn’t necessarily feel like a woman. I didn’t feel like a man. And that’s what it’s about. For me, it’s like feeling human at your core,” she said.

Then, Demi commented that she returned to adopting feminine pronouns because she considered herself, at that moment, “more feminine”. However, she stressed that using the correct pronouns is a learning process for many people.

“I think the important thing is, like, no one is perfect. Everyone confuses pronouns at some point, and especially when people are learning, it’s all about respect”, highlighted the singer.
