Demi went on to say that she previously felt her "masculine and feminine energy" were at a balance, "especially last year."

"When I was faced with the choice of walking into a bathroom and it said 'women' and 'men,' I didn’t feel like there was a bathroom for me because I didn’t feel necessarily like a woman."

"I didn’t feel like a man," she continued while talking about why she initially adopted they/them pronouns. "I just felt like a human. And that’s what they/them is about. For me, it’s just about, like, feeling human at your core.”

Demi went on to explain that the reason she uses she/her pronouns now is because "Recently, I've been feeling more feminine," and she also pointed out that, when it comes to pronouns in general, it's still a learning process for many people.

"I think what’s important is, like, nobody’s perfect," she said. "Everyone messes up pronouns at some point, and especially when people are learning, it’s just all about respect.”
