The only thing you have to do in order to fit in in today's society is to not fit in anywhere and to not be normal.
Don't be male or female, don't be straight, don't be a Christian. In fact, you can literally just make up whatever you want.
You can literally call yourself whatever you want now. If I want to label myself as a riptarbian, I can do that and then I'll be "so brave".
More and more people are coming out as something other than straight people who recognize their real genders. This is largely in part due to it appearing to be trendy among celebrities.
The other thing is that young people really have a tendency to want to stand for something. Unfortunately, young people are dumber than they used to be and they stand for something that is anti-reality and anti-science.
Singer Demi Lovato has recently come out as being "pansexual" or "sexually fluid" in an interview with Joe Rogan.
Speaking to podcast host Joe Rogan on Saturday, the pop star explained she is “so fluid now” regarding her sexuality, according to Today.
“I’m so fluid now, and a part of the reason why I am so fluid is because I was, like, super closeted off,” Lovato said.
“You mean sexually fluid?” Rogan asked. “You like girls? You like boys?”
“Yeah, anything, really,” Lovato replied.
“What do they call that? Like pansexual or something like that?” Rogan asked.
“Yeah, pansexual,” the singer responded.
Her first twinge of lesbian attraction, Lovato said, came when she saw Selma Blair and Sarah Michelle Gellar kiss in the 1999 film “Cruel Intentions.”
“I felt a lot of shame because growing up in Texas as a Christian, that’s very frowned upon,” said Lovato, who broke off her engagement with actor Max Ehrich last year. “Any attraction that I ever had toward a female at a young age, I shut it down before I even let myself process what I was feeling.”
During the interview with Rogan, Lovato also explained what she believes is the importance of speaking her truth when it comes to all aspects of her life. “I’m done living other people’s truths,” she said. “I’m here to tell you that I’m going to live mine no matter what you think of it because it feels right to me.”

In a post of Lovato's on Instagram, she tries to make an argument that gender reveal parties are transphobic and uses the following rhetoric:
"Gender reveals are based on the illusion that genitals = gender and that there are only two options "boy or girl". This definition erases the fact that there are boys with vaginas and girls with penises and that there are people who are neither boys nor girls. the idea that sex is based on genitalia is inconsistent with science.
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 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."

She continues with some more nonsense as well, but let's just talk about this portion above.
Lovato says that some boys have v*ginas and some girls have p*nises and that there are some people who are neither boys or girls and then appeals to "science". Well, what does science say? This is a little tricky, but not too much.
The general consensus is that if you have an XX pair for the sex chromosomes, then you're a female; if you have an XY pair, then you're a male. This is pretty much the case, but there may be a slight exception in the case of what would be genetic deformities where someone with an XX chromosome could have a penis. How is this the case? This would be because of what is known at the sex-determining region Y gene (SRY gene).
The same thing can happen in the reverse wherein the SRY gene is missing from the Y chromosome and they don't develop male genitalia.
But guess what? These are all genetic deformities and not normative. Their genitals are not normal looking and there are obvious problems with them.
So we have two possibilities and either one of them I think work. Either the pair of sex chromosomes determine true biological gender, or the SRY gene does. I'm fine with either one. This isn't what the controversy is when it comes to transgender people. They are literally just saying their something else than what they are because they want to.
