There’s a whole lotta crazy feeeeeeeeeeeeeeeelings in this story.
From Daily Mail: YouTuber Trisha Paytas has been slammed after announcing she is transgender in a ‘controversial’ video that has seen her accused of ‘exploiting the LGBT community.’
The Celebrity Big Brother star, 31, from California, was born and has been living as a female, but on Monday, she posted a video to her YouTube channel entitled ‘I am Transgender, female to male’ in which she said she actually feels she is a ‘gay man’.
At the end of the 15-minute clip that was shared with her 4.9 million followers she concluded: ‘Do I think I’m transgender? Yes, a thousand per cent. Do I identify with my natural born gender? A thousand per cent.’
Viewers were left outraged by the announcement, with some accusing Trisha of treating the LGBT community as ‘a joke’.
One wrote: ‘Sis I love you…but this is NOT it….to make a joke of something people get murdered for…your white woman privilege is jumping out.’
Another commented: ‘This is so harmful on so many levels and you just don’t even care.’
Trisha angered her thousands of fans after posting the video online last night, leaving many confused with her rambling statement about her gender.
The YouTube star said she came to the conclusion that she is a transgender man after feeling ‘so happy’ while wearing her hair short and wearing trousers for a video where she dressed up as Zac Efron.
She added that she identifies ‘with men better’ than women, but that she sees herself more ‘as a gay man’, because she is sexually attracted to gay men.
Trisha compared her experience to that of gay men dressing up in drag, saying she loves being ‘glam and voluptuous.’
She revealed: ‘In my head I feel like I’m a female transgender to male, but also like a drag queen. I don’t like to be center of attention, except for when I want to be the center of attention.
‘Think of like a drag queen: they do their full glam and everything, but in their day to day they’re not, they’re very low-key, whatever.’
She added that she also has ‘penis envy’ and feels like she has ‘masculine energy’.
