How She Knew And Explained That She Was A Lesbian?
Let’s move toward how she knew that she was a lesbian :
Jojo Siwa has now started getting viral on social media as she revealed that she was lesbian. Jojo Siwa got on social media on the 29th of July and stopped the accusations about the allegation she had made to define “lesbian” as a dirty word.
She dressed well in a blue and white hoodie and made a dance video. Someone has commented on her video that lesbian is a dirty word, and of course, it is not fine to give such statements to anyone’s social media account as they are also humans.
MSiwa said that the commenter did not do anything but insult our community and me. She further explained that my “sexuality” is not dirty at all.
She was normally going through her comment and accidentally found that comment. She further explained that I never said that “lesbian” is a dirty word, and I will never say it is dirty as it is not. It is not a word I or anyone should be ashamed of saying or identifying it.
She further elaborated, “Now, if you look at the comment that this is commented under if that makes sense, it says, ‘I’m sorry that people are trying to cancel you for not liking the sound of a word. And that’s exactly it.
I don’t hate the word ‘lesbian.’ I… whenever somebody talks to me about my sexuality, I just say that I’m gay.”
Furthermore, siwa also declared her girlfriend’s name as Kylie prew, who is just 18 years old. She further expresses that she does not care about what the whole internet thinks about her, but she is too happy to find somebody in her life like that.
Siwa says she did not want to put any “label” on sexuality. Siwa further elaborated that she announced it at the very least, but she got inspiration from her girlfriend. Both of them first become friends, and it turns automatically into a romantic relationship.
She did so in very basic terms. She said, “I still don’t know who I am. It’s like, I want to find it out. And I have this joke. Her name is Kylie. So I say that I’m Ky-sexual. But I don’t know, if bisexual, pansexual, queer, lesbian, gay, or straight; I always just say “gay” or “queer” since I think the term is hip.
She continues, “I enjoy gay.” Technically speaking, I would describe myself as pansexual because that is how I have always identified. My human is my human.
It was that statement that was viral on social media for some days. Their love story begins on a cruise ship. The conversation went ahead, and it was like
According to Siwa, “I told her my entire spiel that I tell everyone when they ask me about my life story.” She says, “I could have Googled that. I want to know about you. You just told me about your career. ” I replied, “No one’s ever asked me that.”
She continues, I never intended for [my coming out] to be a big deal. However, it was the first time a person with the following base that is so young come out publicly as LGBTQ.
Since I was a young child, I’ve known, says Siwa. Jessalynn, her mother, adds, “I did too. Mothers are aware. Both of them were also aware of the danger of telling everyone. My love life could have eliminated a lot of things, adds Siwa.
After telling that story to her large audience, she expected that her fans would support her and understand her, but she was wrong.
There were more than half comments we’re leaning towards a bad direction, like “I will never buy your products,” “I am unable to sleep after watching that video,” and “My daughter will never watch your video again.” So it shows the negative mentality of society.
On Friday, Jojo raises the issue of such people at the newsstand. Siwa cleared in very simple words by saying that she doesn’t want people to buy her merchandise or watch her videos if people do not support the LGBTQ community. People must support LGBTQ and Jojo together if they want to buy merchandise or watch videos.
In short, Jojo Siwa is a lesbian star with a girlfriend named Kylie prew. Siwa started her career in the spotlight, got huge success, and worked in music, filming, and studios. We should not forget that lesbians are also humans; they could have a different filing and are not different from society. They are just part of society as we are.
