Demi Lovato called gender reveal parties “transphobic” and claimed that “there are boys with vaginas and girls with penises,” according to the Daily Wire.
“It’s both insincere and incorrect to pretend that gender reveal parties are not transphobic. You can’t have your proverbial pink-blue binary cake and eat it too. This is not about political correctness, it’s just…correct.”
“We condemn gender reveals not because of our identity, but because of reality.”
“Transphobia is not just about prejudice against individual trans people, it’s also a way of thinking that understands non-trans people as more natural/organic and erases everyone else.”
“These ideas, like the gender binary, fuel mistreatment of all people, but especially trans and gender non-conforming people.”
“Gender reveals require not just the invalidation of transness, but the impossibility of transness. The assumption is that the baby is cis. Cisness is positioned as the default and everyone else is understood as derivative of it,” the post reads. “The idea goes: while we might ‘identify’ as trans now, we were ‘originally’ ‘born’ cis and we later ‘became’ trans. When in truth, everyone is just born. And we all become after the fact.”
“The gender binary requires that we adopt prescriptive ideas of gender (what men and women should be) as descriptive ideas of gender (what men and women fundamentally are). In this way, it naturalizes cultural myths as ‘biological facts.’”
From The Daily Wire:
Over the last year, Lovato has become increasingly more open about her far-left political leanings. In October, she released a song called “Commander in Chief” roasting former President Donald Trump. The cover art for the song features Lovato wearing a mask that reads “vote” across her mouth, The Daily Wire reported. The later virtually performed at the inauguration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris.
