100 thoughts on “iO Tillett Wright: Fifty shades of gay

  1. An amazing Ted Talk, but find it interesting and slightly annoying that she never once used the word bisexual even though she talked at length about the idea of liking or being attracted to more than one gender. Just one oversight and annoyance that as a Bisexual I noticed. But amazing message

  2. I am very guilty of never considering gender, identification, or preference as being separate things before. I never thought of any of them before. I guess that makes me some sort of jerk. These are matters that are very confusing to me. I accept and admit that our country is not a theocracy. And I agree that equal rights should be equal. It's wrong for people to attack others if they disagree for any reason.

  3. I'm not part of the LBGTQ but I think this is one of the best talks ever. I also think the same view is valid for everything and everyone and I truly hope that we will not need labels one day. Have a great life everybody!

  4. I think she is just a bisexual girl who has her own style. Lol it's strange to say some clothes are boys and some girls. But labeling, why? ๐Ÿ˜€

  5. Yeah, i really liked this talk, but where do the asexual fall? I don't feel as if they are gay or straight. It's another dimension entirely, in which i would fall to the gray area. But i guess it's not as important, no one discriminates me for being a prude ๐Ÿ˜€

  6. An awesome discourse regarding the pronouns "I, me, my, myself". It doesn't take much to impress americans.

  7. yeah i feel this on a personal level. i wanted to be like a boy too when i was young. i always felt different as a child. i hated my long hair i wanted to dress like a boy but then i got older and i became okay with being a girl in fact i take a lot of pride in being a girl now. and like her i realized lol iim not straight either. there are a lot a girls like me i guess it's nice to know.

  8. I first discovered Io Tillett wright and then found this video and I'm so glad. I'm honestly shocked that I found people that feel the same way I do. This is amazing

  9. I'm in love with IO โค๏ธ I have never felt like I fit into a box, I'm a girl but feel a boy. Yet I don't have dysphoria by definition, I wear "boy clothes" and do "boy activities". I feel closer to knowing myself from watching this videoโ˜บ๏ธ

  10. I love IO , he's amazing. Anyone knows where can I find the movie he mentions? where he appears as a little boy… Julian Po. I'd love to see that film and see him acting!

  11. The problem is of the society you can wear boy clothes and play boy games and still be a girl. Is a pitty we have to be a model of "perfect" boy of girl to be in the box.

  12. I would like to correct the Japanese translation
    ๆ€ง็š„ๅ—œๅฅฝ is not right expression,ๆ€ง็š„ๆŒ‡ๅ‘ is right
    it is the small thing but very important thing

  13. Gender role is manipulated by society. Be who you want to be ! We change every day… I am a tomboyish girl since i was a kid but loves to dress feminine. I love the style. Everyone who knows me says im very cool and free-spirited in that way. because its what I choose…not society lol

  14. I am gay. I don't want to end up with a boy. It crashes with my religion. I wish if I could just express myself. So sad I am a MUSLIM. I always tell myself, life is very short and the reward will be great from God. ๐Ÿ˜ข

  15. omg she's so beautiful and the project is so awesome. Can't describe how much I like it, soo true everything.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’›

  16. Almost cried. I personally don't understand how one could dislike so much understanding and nobility in this speech and these pictures <3

  17. Okay okay, this video is amazing and inspiring and all, but i cant get over just one fact.


  18. hats off to a great project! Just finding you now, which is the perfect time. I will share the project with my audience and if you are in Houston, would love to be a face for us! thanks for your work!!

  19. I remember iO very well. I directed a production of Charlie & the Chocolate Factory in NYC. iO was a wonderful Charlie. I think iO was about 8. Your pics bring back memories.

  20. I never had a clique….

    Until 6th grade, when I met some kids and got to know some others better, then I had a clique, itโ€™s great! They were like me, queer, all in different ways,1gay, 1 bi, 1 questioning, you get the picture, it was great BECAUSE I felt excepted, I, at the beginning of grade 6 was questioning, then I came to terms with the fact that I like girls, but I wasnโ€™t sure about guys, and that, I felt safer and it was easier because I knew people like me, only 1 of them knew about me, but they all helped just by being who they were and being open about that. that was only last year and I am still figuring out my identity, i know I like girls, but boys I pretty much feel indifferent about, so I donโ€™t know about them, a lot suck, some are nice, but I have never really been attracted to any boys, only girls.

  21. My genderfluid pansexual heart is hurting, because when I am a boy, I WISH I COULD LOOK LIKE THEY DO WHEN I DRESS LIKE A BOY

  22. I am not part of the LGBTQ community, but this is one of the best talks I have heard on the subject. I was a tomboy as a kid, and I still find many of my interests do not fit in what a "girly girl" is supposed to be.

  23. Thรฉ droit to adopt children, is not a droit of adults. It is a droit of children, they have thรฉ droits of having a normal parents. Are children who have thรฉ droit to choise theirs parents.

  24. The lake of fire is your destination you disgusting transgender that is for sure.n YOU NEVER were a GIRL – NEVER.
