Sam Smith Comes Out As Non-Binary / Asks To Be Called “They/Them”

Published: Saturday 14th Sep 2019 by Sam

Sam Smith has long been a bold lyricist and now the British belter is extending said boldness into the public sphere.

For, the 27-year-old has announced that they identify as a non-binary gender and wants to be referred to as such. Hence, instead of being “he/him” it’ll be “they/them.”

Smith’s words below…

Today is a good day so here goes. I’ve decided I am changing my pronouns to THEY/THEM❤ after a lifetime of being at war with my gender I’ve decided to embrace myself for who I am, inside and out…

I’m so excited and privileged to be surrounded by people that support me in this decision but I’ve been very nervous about announcing this because I care too much about what people think but f*ck it!

I understand there will be many mistakes and mis gendering but all I ask is you please please try. I hope you can see me like I see myself now. Thank you.

P.s. I am at no stage just yet to eloquently speak at length about what it means to be non binary but I can’t wait for the day that I am. So for now I just want to be VISIBLE and open. If you have questions and are wondering what this all means I’ll try my best to explain…

These are activists and leaders of the non binary/trans community that have helped me and given me so much clarity and understanding.

    They/them is plural and he’s one person. Therefor I will refer to HIM according to whatever’s between HIS legs.

    • Queen 👸🏾 Missy September 14, 2019

      I’ll refer to you what’s between your ears, airhead.

      I think he is evolving. Just last year he said he was not going to transition into a woman. Now he is saying he wants to be “they” as in both male and female. Next year it will be something else and on and on it goes. I think these are all orchestrated PR stunts. He put out a couple songs and videos and wants attention!

    • DIABETES UNBOTHERED September 14, 2019

      Ppl like Sam Smith are most likely just AUTISTIC… when your autistic your mind thinks in percular self defeating ways… “He’s taller more outgoing and athletic then I am and all my friends are either girls, adult women or nerds so therefore I must be part girl and part nerd” these are delusional unconscious non-verbal thoughts that sum autistic kids like SAM SMITH AND BRICE JENNER have with themselves they carry over into delusional adults.

      • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇 🍷 September 15, 2019

        He seems self-absorbed like most celebs are. Nobody cares how he think of himself or whose f.ucking him. He grasping at straws to give his new music attention. Truth is, without a Mary J. Blige, Normani, or some other black woman giving his music a boost aint nobody checking for him. He aint no Elton John or Liberace. Those the types who could sell many songs by themself. He a wannabe!

    So does he want to be be called “They/Them” because he identifies with two genders instead of his singular birth assigned gender? Genuine question before I look it up?

    I mean good for him, but there aren’t many in the mainstream who have trodden this path so he’s bound to be met with rolled eyes and claims self identification and expression have gone too far – but he’s not harming me and you can bet there’s plenty of others for whom his visibility on this topic will help them be seen as they wish to be.

    • A&R September 14, 2019

      Its baffling how society has orchestrated the mix up between s** and gender. You’re born with a s** that’s either female or male. Your society assigns your gender, boy/man or girl/ woman. We must teach our world the difference, especially trans people.

  3. Queen 👸🏾 Missy September 14, 2019

    They/them can have a seat.

    • Irving September 15, 2019

      Heehees in michael jackson.

  4. Clarkson September 14, 2019

    Every since he lost weight, he thinks he’s the shìt.
    Sam ur just an insecure white boy who sing soul music that belongs to black people. Go away

    • BadgalRiri September 14, 2019

      But the. She gave a black girl Normani top 7 hit which gave her highest single ever in her entire flopping career with Sam smith as the main reason why this song reach top 10

      Floptivation peaked at number #33 a major disappointment for an overhype self proclaimed diva 😂

      • Glazba September 14, 2019

        I agree with this. Normani is just a flop. And this queen Sam Smith is responsible for her even having a top 10 hit.. But both of the artists need to sit the fukk down.

      • SMH September 14, 2019

        You’re both wrong. Her biggest hit was her duet with Khalid, a DARK SKINNED BLACK MAN. So you can both sit the f*ck down and stfu.

      • BadgalRiri September 14, 2019

        @SMH you are wrong here! Love lies only peaked at #9 with all the payola
        Now sit you ass down

      • Black Jasmine, The REAL Princess Jasmine Okurrr. September 15, 2019

        SMH aka TROLLmine the He/She lady boy aka the Middle Eastern Sam Smith has been proven wrong again, you better think before you speak.

    • Dc September 14, 2019

      Agree

  5. Navy Gravy September 14, 2019

    He’s only one person. He wants to be called it instead of him. Ok.

  6. XYZ September 14, 2019

    So, is it now “they is” or “they are”. Is he a multiple personality? Actually, I get the whole trans thing and everything and it needs to be tolerated. But this “they” thing is just dumb and utter Nonsense. He is just not manly in the way he thinks a stereotypical man should be and therefore thinks he is like a Mixture of a man and a woman, but thats dumb. As long as you feel confident in your Body and dont hate your penis, because you feel like you’re in the wrong Body, you’re a man. Point blank. You dont have to act like a footballer to be a man.

    • A&R September 14, 2019

      But non-binary ppl are what you just explained lol the only difference is.. instead of saying they’re born the wrong body and hating it (trans ppl) they love their bodies and accept the fact they’re both masculine and feminine = non-binary = despite my s**, don’t call me a man or woman because that’s made up. The only thing that’s real is that I was born a male or female. That’s it. I think with more research you’d probably feel trans ppl are more of the unrealistic thinkers.

  7. King Khia September 14, 2019

    Career suicide.

  8. Namo September 14, 2019

    Then why does he say “PS: I am…” instead of “PS: we are” ? Man… you’re not even coherent.

    • 🍇 Jasmine’s Grape Juice 🍇 🍷 September 14, 2019

      Lol i caught that too. He sounds uneducated.

    • A&R September 15, 2019

      Because the use of they and them over he or she isn’t about the traditional/ standard English grammar. He’s using the terms to replace gender specific terms to communicate that he doesn’t subscribe to traditional gender.

      Question, have you ever picked up on a same gender loving person, wanting to keep the identity of a person they were seeing as private but also wanted to avoid lying? In that situation they would say I was talking with them or I was out them or… they did such and such lol prior to this current rise of *in your face, lgbt promotion* anytime you heard a sexually suspect person use those vague terms it indicated they were referring to same gender ppl. With times changing the community is now making their lifestyle more normal and mainstream.

      In short, don’t see this with grammatical eyes. See it as cultural play on words.

    Mental illness….

    • Oh plz September 14, 2019

  17. PinotNoir September 14, 2019

    Again? Good for it. 😒

  18. ExFatties September 14, 2019

    I’m generally, open to new concepts but these millennials making up words such as binary, being a hundred million things can they make their mind up she was a woman the other day. They/Them is not correct English he’s not 10 people, bish please. There’s gay, trans and bisexual people the rest are just in between. Sick of hearing these random words. Sometimes ex fat people get too good for their own cause.

  19. Yolanda September 14, 2019

    Ish, I won’t call you at all. WTF?

  20. DIABETES UNBOTHERED September 14, 2019

    Ppl like Sam Smith are most likely just AUTISTIC… when your autistic your mind thinks in percular self defeating ways… “He’s taller more outgoing and athletic then I am and all my friends are either girls, adult women or nerds so therefore I must be part girl and part nerd” these are delusional unconscious non-verbal thoughts that sum autistic kids like SAM SMITH AND BRICE JENNER have with themselves that carry over into delusional adults.

  21. #TheTruth September 14, 2019

    Oh please, why do they have to make everything so complicated ? Such a drama queen. It’s just a pronoun, get over your damn self. It’s like we have to create a box for every type of profile out there. Adios.

  22. DIABETES UNBOTHERED September 14, 2019

    Put simply Bruce Jenner Boy George and Sam smith are all so BORED with themselves that they want to believe that they are part women… They Somehow think they are more interesting as both genders. Society or peers ignoring them must have something to do with it.

  23. Starr September 14, 2019

    So many haters in the comments here, your worlds must be fragile if they’re so easily upset by a little four letter word, that shouldn’t affect you AT ALL unless you can’t stop worrying about how others live their lives. Maybe time to get lives of your own…?

    I’m a fellow they/them person, and thank you to Sam Smith for making this public. I see you, fellow non-binary person and I hope you keep those who support you close.

  24. RacismIsDead September 14, 2019

    LOL @ Non Binary…. These millennials are out here making us all look crazy. Identifying as the opposite s**, no s**, animals…. you insecure losers are going to be the death of all of us. So ignorant, insecure, and weak that you blindly adopt these generic pronouns and follow an agenda that was only designed to divide. There are only two genders, you can identify as whatever you want, it doesn’t make it reality. You people need mental help.

  25. shawn September 14, 2019

    ok
    now he doing too much

  26. A&R September 14, 2019

    Now that I know what non-binary means and what the group decides to represent, I support 💯. I hope more trans people see this new community as a way for them to fully accept their original selves and live more free.

  27. Ben September 15, 2019

    If one of the hijackers had just showed up in the ER with cutaneous anthrax, which would not be “skin irritation “ or a single lesion and not been diagnosed and aggressively treated he would probably have died… Read more <===
